I have already purchased the SlideIT keyboard from Google Play, but it keeps saying I have to buy it again!

If you bought it from Google Play using your google checkout account you don't need to pay to download it again.

I am unable to use the speech recognition function!

In order to use the speech to text feature, a speech recognition service must be installed on the device

There are many speech recognition services on Googl Play. One of the most common is Google's Voice
Search application, which is pre-installed on many Android devices.

You can check if Voice Search is installed in Settings --> Applications -->Manage applications, Voice Search application.

If Google's Voice Search is not installed on your device, you can download it for free from Google Play.
Then, you should go to SlideIT Settings and enable the Speech Recognition option.

It is a one-time payment. Buying the app once will also entitle you to all future upgrades.
