    I was told I could dictate onto my IPad 3. Just don't know how? I do not see a small microphone on the screen as I was
    Told. Any help appreciated, in layman terms :)

    That's great.

    Ignore my post. I think I got sucked in by a trollbot.

    Followed direcTions, not working....
    Am in English keyboard setting, dictation on.
    The microphone shows some volume to it as I am speaking LOUD, then I get a few pink dots on my notes page, then they go away.
    What next?
    Thanks, N

    Sounds like it is trying to work.

    Next time you aren near a hot spot (if you have one in a nearby city town) give it a try there and see if it works better.
