When you bought latest version of iPad the first thing you probably did is restoring a backup and transferring everything from your old iPad. If you already did that some of new features that iPad brings won’t be accessible to you because they will be turned off by default. One of them is Voice Dictation and in this tutorial I will show you how to enable it.


To get started follow steps below

Step 1: On your new iPad go to Settings, choose General section, scroll at the bottom of the page and tap on Keyboard

Step 2: In here at the bottom switch option Dictation from OFF to ON

Step 3: Next time, whenever a keyboard shows up on your new iPad you will have the option to dictate what you are typing. For that simply tap on microphone key and say what you want to type.

Step 4: Once you are finished tap on same microphone icon again and your words will be converted into text on your iPad screen

Step 5: If you iPad is not 100% sure about certain words you said he will underline those words with blue dotted line. When you tap on that word a small balloon window will show up with alternative suggestions.

You are done! We would love t hear your opinions about this new feature in iOS 5, so please share them in comment section below.

    You don’t have this option on your iPad 2 because it is only available on iPad 3 with latest iOS version. Make sure you read this article
