Keep causing new line while typing

iOS and iPadOS

I will be typing away on my ipad ios 9.1 using the onscreen keyboard when suddenly Voiceover says "new line" as if I've hit the return key but I have not. It happens a lot. Any ideas about why this is happening? Its not like typing a wrong character and deleting it. Its a royal pain to fix and get back on track.
