Completing Dictation

iOS & iPadOS


Happy holidays to you all. As of today, I'm the porud new owner of an iPad Mini, and I'm having some trouble with dictation. I'm able to start the process with no issue, and speak the text I wish to be written, but I'm not sure how to indicate to the iPad that I've finished dictating. I'm currently having to return to the home screen and reopen the app, and although this works, and the text is entered, it's awkward and annoying. Can anyone help me work out a way of finishing dictation?

Title says it all really. A two finger double tap will end the dictation and Voiceover should then speak what has just been typed.

This appears to work, but seems a little inconsistent. There are times where this is not working, and times when it is...

I used to use dictation; now I use Braille Screen Input. A way I used to know when dictation was stopped was when I heard a double beep, similar to the one that you hear when you speak to Siri. Because I have not used dictation in a while, I do not know if this has changed.
