weird issue with I-phone

iOS & iPadOS

For the past couple of weeks, I've noticed a very strane issue with my I-phone 5s, running the lastest version of IOS. Whenever I'm in an edit box, or even just moving threw my messages, my phone acts like dictayion has been activated, when it hasn't. Restarting the phone, turning off siri and turning it back on, as well as doing the same with dictation have not fixed this problem. This issue has also persisted even though dictation is turned off. Anything else I can try?

The nearest thing I can think of is to reset your phone by doing the usual reset methods i.e. holding the home and screen lock button in for about 15 seconds. If that doesn't fix it, you may have to do something more drastic, like resetting the phone and starting from scratch.

that happened to me one time but not by moving through messages I was typing and the dictation came on when it wasn't supposed to be.
