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 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
