Default Speech to text

A friend with a moto droid running 2.1 has speech to text capabilities in any application. His keyboard has a microphone button on it.

I have read that the Eris 2.1 has this functionality too. I cannot find where to activate it if it does indeed have this.

And to be clear, i am not talking about text to speech, where the phone reads to you, I am talking about for instance, having google talk open and speaking your message and the phone converts it to text.

Anyone know if this is in 2.1? (I am rooted and running grdlocks 2.1 rom, btw)

I was just talking about this to someone on another forum. As far as I've been able to find, Handcent has this capability and maybe a few other apps from the store. What I think we really need is the keyboard from either the Nexus One or the Droid to be ported over then we can see if it will work.

There's an app called "Better Keyboard" that does speach to text in any text field. I liked to show it off, but it seemed a little too slow for contstant use.
