    Any way to turn this beep sound off? I keep hitting in in class/meetings because it's next to the space bar.

    Really? Way to be helpful... Don't you have better things to be doing other than posting useless unhelpful responses on a forum?

    Avoiding hitting the button is probably the only solution. I would assume that it makes the sound based on the assumption that you aren't too concerned about silence since you are about to speak to the phone.

    Who says it was useless or unhelpful? It's your only solution, if you don't like the answer don't ask the question.

    Well of course. I understand why it does that, but it's unfortunate location and no way to turn the sound off is quite annoying.

    ----------

    I don't know that it's my only solution, THAT is why I asked the question. And when I post "I keep accidentally hitting the button", how can you see "don't hit the button" as NOT a smart ass response?

    Yea despite the responses you got I think this is a valid concern. It is very easy to hit that button, and there are certainly times that you wouldn't want to make that noise. Apple has a feedback page and you may want to send your request to them

    Yupp, thank you. I have noticed other people mentioning how easy it is to hit this button. I wish there was just a way to turn the sound off.

    I'm wondering if the "jailbreak world" will come up with a way to do it.

    Yes - turn Siri volume down.

    Hold home button down until Siri pops up, then immediately hit the Volume Down button. The lower you go, the more quiet that beep prompt is - both with Siri, and the Mic button on the keyboard.

    Brilliant. I didn't realize there was a separate volume setting for Siri. Thanks! This was bothering me yesterday as I was in a quiet setting and accidentally hit the mic a couple times.

    Thank you!!! I didn't realize there was a separate volume for Siri either. Still a little bit of a hassle because I'll have to turn Siri up again when I want to use her, but this certainly beats my previous issue!

    Dotme... You are a genius! In my case, the ding that the microphone creates scares the crap out of my dog. Don't ask me why, but all dings and pings scare him. For years I've been suffering through his anxiety every time I used talk – to – text. You have now solved that problem. I too, did not know that Siri had her own volume button. Thank you thank you thank you.

    As I recall these days dictation can even be separately disabled without disabling Siri, which would get rid of that button by the keyboard and any accidental uses of it. Siri has also been changed as of iOS 9 to no longer make a sound when it is invoked.

    Or you can disable dictation if that isn't something you use, and that button wouldn't even be there.

    I use it all the time; especially while driving, but I don't need the beep even then and I certainly don't need the beep when hitting the button by accident trying to send a critical text under the table during a big Executive meeting! That SIRI volume method is just what I needed!

    Dotme you are my HERO!!!
    I've been going crazy for the opposite reason as everyone else. I've always loved the beep, and lately it had disappeared. And now because of you I have my beep back! Yay!

    I was quite annoyed with the beep myself. Because I ride the Knight and the beep would wake the sleeping beast. All you need to do is hit the prediction key and use volume keys to lower volume to your preference. Might need ISO 9 and above. When David Hassllelhoff asked Karr something did the car blast it's horn?
