    I’ve turned “Enable Voice Dictation” to “on” by moving the slider to the right, showing the green area to the left of the slider button.

    While I see the microphone icon on the on-screen keyboard, it’s grayed out. Pressing it doesn’t initiate a voice dictation session.

    Are there more steps I need to take to enable voice dictation on an iPad Pro?

    Thank you

    Make sure it’s not restricted (Settings - Screen Time - Content & Privacy Restrictions - Allowed Apps).

    This feature needs a stable internet connection (Wi-Fi or cellular). Try disabling them, then restart your iPad and turn them on again.
