    When I am using the keyboard and the voice comes on to suggest a letter or word I never know what the volume of the voice wil be. Sometimes it is VERY loud and sometimes it is normal . I only want to change it when it is REALLY loud. It drives me nuts. And it is not connected to the rest of my volumes! I can put the volume to zero and it is still LOUD! The sound settings can all be zero and the keyboard voice is still the sane. TOO LOUD! Anybody know how to help? I sure would appreciate it. Thanks. squib

    Squib--are you referring to Siri when you select and highlight a word than asks for it to speak? If so, you can double press the home button and swipe to the right to show your volume controls. There you can lower the volume.

    Have a look at these pics and see if this pertains to you.

    No, I don't have SIRI. I am talking about when I am typing right now! Like when I type the word I it says out loud " capital I " which it just said. Sometimes it is a man's voice and sometimes a woman's. squib
    I just typed a phrase and highlighted it and doubled clicked but all I got were the APPS in RAM?

    Squib,do you have the "Voice Over" feature on?

    Head over to Settings/General/Accessibility/voice over and see if you have it switched to on.

    You can turn it off if you wish. Otherwise, you can lower the volume by the directions I gave you!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU - I had voice AUTO CHECK on. I might make a lot of typo's mow but at least I won't have that voice yelling at me too! There was a slider to go left to right speaker which is in the middle but no choice for volume. Thank you again Skimonkey!
    Oh I see voice over which was off and then there is / here is a picture and they are all turned off now. The speak auto text was the one I turned off and now It is quiet!

    Hi ski monkey et al,

    After looking at these posts, I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a way or control for the typing voice? I am a lousy typer

    Let's see what others say. I don't use that feature to answer for you!

    Oh crap, now that I don't have the voice anymore I keep getting a been sound every 20 sec or so. At first I thought it was my alarm because I unplugged it for about 5 hrs, big deal, but I rarely unplug it if I'm using it. But now I don't know. I am going to turn it off and see what happens. When my iPad is powered off the correct way - white apple - should I still hear the sound I get when I get new mail? I don't think so! And with all of these sound issues I am having am wondering if I have a speaker or sound issue. Not a far leap I know! But I JUST passed my one year date! Grrrr!

    HELP! I AM WORRIED! My iPad started making beeping noises every 3 sec then 5 sec then 3 sec for two days. Once in awhile a message comes up saying something like

    This charger does not (? ) support (?) this (? ) sorry I really can't remember that last word. But even though I kept my eye on my battery it was topped up. Now all of a sudden it has gone down to 87% even though it has been plugged in. Also the screen will dim and brighten every so often, maybe once a week. That has happened for a long time. Oh and now the beeping has stopped for the first time. One other thing. I will shut down my IPAD the proper way. Even /here comes the beeping again! I even X out all the Ram then push on the power thing so I get the red slider. But then the white apple will show up right away, and then it goes to my lock screen with the slider to turn it on....it does this all by itself without me touching anything , not the keys, not the IPad! Has anyone any idea of what could be happening? Squib.
