The little microphone icon that used to appear above the keyboard has disappeared I believe soon after Windows update. This was very handy when I've been sending text message. Does anybody out there know how I could have the feature reactivated?
In the settings > keyboard section, there is a button "More keyboard settings".
In that section, make sure that "Show dictation button" is checked.
By Default, it is unchecked.
What language are you using? I am using German and I have no option for dictation.
I had this problem with my Lumia 650 but eventually fixed it as follows:
Settings Privacy Speech, Inking & Typing Getting to know you Click on getting to know me and the dictation icon reappears - hooray!
