I use the Dictation button on my Whatsapp. It's the microphone next to the Space Bar.

The swiftkey keyboard app has the same feature.

Do you have Android/Google phone, Apple/iPhone, Microsoft/Windows phone, or a basic/flip phone?

If Google/Android i.e. LG, Samsung, Kyrocea, Motorola, Google, on the screen keyboard in any app, click the microphone icon at the top of the keybaord. If you have a flip phone, I know of none. If you have one of the other type of smartphones, others can chime in.

^^^ I think, in most cases, the microphone records the voice to be HEARD, not read. To have it converted in messaging, an additional app is needed.
It could work with SwiftKey Keyboard, but I didn't test - heir disclaimer made me NOT to try their service:
"This input method may be able to collect all the text you type, including personal data like passwords and credit card numbers. It comes from the app SwiftKey Keyboard."
they say that:
"SwiftKey does not learn anything from fields marked as password fields, nor does it remember long numbers such as credit card numbers."
but I have not verified their security level, yet.

The iPhone comes standard with a speech to text feature. Is your phone an iPhone?
