Removing Siri Dictaton button in Keyboard

Anyone know how to remove the Siri dictation button on the keyboard? I always hit it by accident and don't see a way to disable it or turn off the "bing" noise.

Put this key in the com.apple.keyboard.plist in the /User/Library/Preferences folder and reboot: DictationOnSpaceKey false

Hiya,

I've tried to do this and not got it right.

Could you show me exactly what to type and where, or upload your plist file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Make your com.apple.keyboard.plist look like the one in this post: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost...54&postcount=3

Non-jailbroken alternative

Is there any way to do this on a non-jailbroken iPhone?

I'm assuming that editing that .plist needs a jailbroken phone as I cannot find it within iTunes or anything.

I want to disable the keyboard dictation button but not Siri entirely.

You might be able to use iFunBox to access that directory and edit the file. Reboot after editing and it should take.

iFunBox can't acces the ~/Library directory on a non-jailbroken device.

For those of you still wanting to disable iOS' Dictation, I've finally found out how. You need to edit the file at /Users/Library/ConfigurationProfiles/UserSettings.plist. Go to the restrictedBoot>allowDictation> key and change the value to false/off/0. Save the changes and reboot your device. The dictation button will be gone.
