I do NOT create this app.
So, please do NOT contact me about it.
Because I have no idea how to edit or hack it to solve your problem.
Use it as it is posted here.

Version v27, June 08, 2010

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=624416

It is now working with HTC Desire, no need to have root access!

Voice input is working !
Plus bunch of other cool features (gestures, smileys, etc.)

Question and Answer

Q: Do I need root access to install this keyboard?
A: No, you dont. Really, you don't need root access!

Q: How do I install this keyboard?
A: Download the "hires" version, unzip it and transfer the HTC_IME_hi.apk to the phone. Use app manager like EStrongs or ASTRO to install this .apk file

Q: Do I need to install the Clicker.apk?
A: No, you dont. You only need this if your phone does not use HTC Sense UI

Q: How do I activate this keyboard?
A: After you installed the keyboard, do long press on a text input field. Then choose HTC IME Mod as input method. You need to do this just once.

Q: Does pinch to zoom still work with this keyboard?
A: Yes, it does work.

Q: Does the phone need to be connected to the internet to use voice input?
A: Yes

Q: But, the voice input still does not work! I pressed the voice input button and nothing came up.
A: Make sure your "voice search" is functioning, press the "Search" hardware button. If you don't see voice search icon then install this:
http://code.google.com/p/voicesearch/
Install only the VoiceSearch 2.1

Q: How to upgrade from old release to new release?
A: Use app manager like EStrongs or ASTRO then choose upgrade

This is a modification of the HTC Sense keyboard, yes you are correct.

The modification adds some more nice features + bug fixes of HTC code.

Which also enable voice input.

In the past, we cannot install this on HTC Desire because it requires root.
But now you can, jonasl made some more changes to make it works as "external 3rd party" keyboard like "Better Keyboard" for example.

When you install this, your current default original HTC Sense keyboard will not be replaced.

So, it is safe! You can choose :D

Oh right, you can do it with Astro? Cool, I just got that. I had a quick Google around for info and they seemed to use other apps.

That's fine though, Astro it is!

you need to enable it first;

goto menu > setting > languages and keyboard > checked HTC_IME mod.

then turn it on by the instructions below.

to turn it on you need to long press on the screen where you are typing and a popup will appear. choose input method and choose HTC_IME mod. then soft reset the phone. voila!

How does this compare to stock for normal texting, email etc? Is it more responsive or anything?

i am using voice to text right now, i will leave everything which is converted to know first time. you can see it is very accurate, there is a few words which is hit and miss, google i am very happy with it.

to know = alone
google = overall

tbh typing on it is exactly the same as the stock keyboard.
