    How can I make the voice dictation thing not make the beep sound when on silent?

    You can't.

    It seems to work on the assumption that if you've activated the feature (intentionally or not...) that you want it to make a noise.

    I believe if you have a Bluetooth or headphones plugged in, it'll make the noise in them instead of the speaker, at least.

    That control has an independent volume control. Invoke it (hold down home button) then as soon as you hear the beep, hit the "down" volume button and set the volume to an acceptable level.

    I was going to post the same answer, but when I tried that I wasn't able to turn the volume all the way off. I was able to make it quiet enough that it wouldn't be heard most of the time, but it still wasn't completely silent.
