 Hi all,

     I have questions on the Google voice search on HTC dream device:

1. I have a HTC dream android phone. The voice dialer works ok on it,
and I think the voice recognizer should be working. However I can not
see the microphone icon besides the Google search widget? Could Anyone
tell me is there anything missing on my phone?  (Is it enabled by
default? by the way, I build the HTC dream's platform image by

2. I want to build my own application which will be using the voice
recognition functionality.  In order to do it, must I have a internet
connection for the android phone?

3. The voice data input from the user will be sent to the Google site
for recognition through Internet, or will be processed and recognized
locally on my HTC phone?

4. Any other things will be required before I can do the development
using voice recognition?

Thank you very much.
