Can you dictate on a Likebook Mars?

Hi

Sorry if it's a silly question, but the only e-ink device I have is a Energy Pro with Android 4.0 or so, and when I take notes the keyboard doesn't have the microphone icon you can use on evry tablet or smartphone to dictate and write quickly.

I suppose the Likebook Mars will have the possibility to dictate the words, but I'm asking just in case...

Thank you in advance

There is no microphone on Energy Reader HD Pro and there is no microphone on Likebook Mars , the little hole next to the usb port is I think a reset hole (I have not tried it). Boyue does not provide a detailed and accurate manual on what he sells us ...

Thank you.

And do you happen to know if there is a microphone on the Onyx Boox Nova?

I'd like to buy a new E-ink reader that I could use to dictate notes, just as I do when I read ebooks on a tablet.

Apparently, at least some onyx devices can use dictation input:

The Onyx Boox NoteS@Wiki » has a mic as does the Onyx Boox Note@Wiki » and BOOX MAX2 Pro@Wiki ». Perhaps others. See Dictation@Wiki »

But you can conect a bluetooth microphone. At least It works with Google voice, but i dont know about a good dictate app and the one I tryed has a annoying sound like a ring all the time.

I believe there is a mic on current Boyue devices like the Mars, I do not know if it supports dictation.
