    By dictation feature do you mean using the microphone button at the bottom left of the keyboard?

    Try recording a voice message to see if that would get rid of it.

    Are you sure your using the one on the keyboard to dictate and not the voice memo button on the right?

    Have you tried recording a voice message (using the microphone on the right of the message compose window) to see if that might make what you are seeing go away?

    It's that gray microphone button on the right of the area where you would normally type a message--it's there in the screenshot you posted in the OP.

    Hi C DM that will just come when I'm using the dictation feature. Besides that I don't see it at all.

    That button shouldn't have anything to do with dictation, it's imply there for voice messages, just like the one on the left is there to send a picture or a video. Do you see the one I'm talking about as it appears in the screenshot you posted?

    If you use that and then try to use dictation afterward do you still get the same issue that you were describing?

    Hi C DM yes it still happens when I am using the dictation feature. I have tried a Google and Bing search with no luck on it to. Thank you for all your help on this. I may have to call Apple

    Have you tried disabling and then re-enabling the dictation feature from settings (and perhaps the same for Siri as they are related)?

    Does this happen with any conversation in Messages or just some particular ones?
