    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.
