    Just a question for any of those lucky iPad Pro owners - are there any keyboard shortcuts to activate the dictation function? I currently have a Zagg keyboard case on my iPad Air and find it so frustrating that I can't dictate to notes and word processors because the virtual keyboard is hidden (love the screen real estate) but so is the microphone key. The Zagg keyboard does have a Siri key, but that doesn't really help me if I want to dictate to Pages. Any thoughts or workarounds for this?? Thanks!

    Might be an app for it? I know the Mac keeps dictating as long as you are within a text box with the flashing line 'typing' cursor, when you press the Fn key twice. Hmm

    Yes, the software keyboard has voice dictation.

    Yeah, I was just hoping the physical IPP keyboard would also have a dictation key, or potentially supporting a shortcut similar to OSX like double tapping the Fn key (which doesn't exist on the IPP keyboard). Has anyone had any luck finding a dictation shortcut on any of the current physical IPP keyboards?
