    Yes. I thought it was bad on the 4S. Works well here. Except it can't understand children. It was amusing watching my kids with it.

    For some reason voice dictation is not showing up on my new iPads keyboard.

    I found it to work... satisfactorily. I had to make an effort to speak clearly for there to be very few errors, but really its not supposed to pick up casual conversation anyway.

    I cant figure out what I'd actually use it for though.

    Do you have an active Internet connection? Because it requires it.

    I think it's bc the RAM was doubled and the better processor

    Yeah, running off wifi. Might have to do a restore, which I am not looking forward to.

    You probably need to enable it. Settings - keyboard - turn on dictation.

    However, I find it is even more inaccurate than my 4s?!? Sometimes, I can dictate an entire sentence, and only one word appears!

    when you set the iPad up it asks if you want it, you may have clicked no so im guessing if you go to settings you can change it

    EDIT: sorry didnt read the post above :s
