Google voice speech engine or alternatve

hi guys, yes it seems absurd, i bought a fairphone and ontop /esolutions in order to get rid of google. still happy about that, but i miss voice commands, voice search, voice dictation and also voice translation as i am travelling a lot.
as far as i found out here and elsewhere there is no alternative (yet) around to google speech engine which, i think has to be installed on a root level.

does anyone have a recipe for that?

ps.: i am aware of the stupidity of this, but my typing is really bad due to esmog sensitivity. that did not get better with a de-googeled phone.


This is the first I’ve heard about eSmog; something new everyday!

A quick search of the forum finds a couple of topics of relevant conversation which may be of interest :wink:
