    I have an iPad 3. I used to have a microphone on my keyboard but it's disappeared!
    Directions say go to settings/general/keyboard and turn on "dictation"
    There is no "dictation" option!?
    Help! I'm an author and need my dictation back!
    Thanks

    Go to Settings - General - Restrictions, and make sure Siri &Dictation is enabled.

    OK - not clear - if Siri & Dictation were enabled and you still don't see Dictation - then try a RESET if not already done - if not familiar w/ the procedure, then hold down both the HOME and ON-OFF buttons until the Apple logo appears (may take 10+ sec), then release and allow the device to reboot - let us know. Dave :)

    Also, check your keyboard language settings. Dictation is not available in all languages.
