    Hi Brid-make sure that if you have a cover that it is not covering the mike. It is a small hole on top of the iPad when holding it in portrait position. Also, when talking-speak close so the mic picks up your voice.

    If that doesn't work, some of the other immediate fixes is this:

    Have you tried to do the following?

    Do the first 2 steps first. Save step 3 as a last resort.

    1. Force the app to close?
    2. Try to restart your iPad?
    3. Try to do a soft reset?

    You can try this in order, if an app becomes funky.

    Force the app to quit by pushing the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. By long pressing the app in question, it will begin to jiggle-press the red circle with the negative sign on the app. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a soft reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    Addendum: By the way, I deleted a duplicate thread that you had on the same question. Please do not do this, since this makes it difficult for other members to participate and/or help you. It is also against forum rules.
