There is no longer a dictation button on the bottom row of my keyboard within iOS 7 beta 1 apps.

Does it show up for anyone? Is there another way to activate dictation that someone may know of?

Do you have Siri activated?

Not sure why, but for me the Siri enabled button is very finicky. I'll turn it on and it doesn't stick, etc. I figured other people found a work-around to enable it...

So a free a few flips back and forth and experimenting on when to exit that setting, it now finally sticks on.

It's the only setting I've seen so far that gives me problems (flashes back off immediately when flipped on, reverts to off after turning on and leaving settings screen).

Has anyone else had to tease this setting to get it to work?

I do see the dictation button on my keyboard, but I've noticed that it's smaller than it used to be, narrower. I don't like that. I use that button a lot, and it was hard enough to hit it before. I wish they hadn't shrunk it.
