    So, just for reference it should be here in Settings > General > Keyboard... (at the bottom right) IF you are running IOS 5.x

    On IOS 6, it is turned on as part of Siri, which is found in Settings > General > Siri

    If you don't see that option, have you enabled restrictions? Go to Settings > General > Restrictions and ensure Dictation / Siri is ON.

    Furthermore, the dictation "Mic" button is only presented on the keyboard when it is sensible to allow dictation (not all the time).

    Oh, and lastly, I should have checked first, you do have an iPad3 (or 4 / Mini), yes? Dictation was an iPad3 (and iPhone4S) exclusive feature when originally released - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5176, but is also supported on the latest iPad4 and Mini now, as well as the iPhone5.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Also, Siri and Dictation are only available in the following languages/keyboards.
