In this demo I show you how to activate Voice Dictation from the Bluetooth Keyboard using the VoiceOver command VO+Dash (-) or on the Braille display input keyboard Space+dots 156: i.e. the VoiceOver two finger magic double tap.
The trick as I explain/demo is to make sure the on-screen keyboard is visible: with the Bluetooth keyboard just press the Eject key (top right of the keyboard) and on the Braille display input keyboard Space+dots 146.
If the keyboard is not on the screen, you’ll just start/stop music playing for example.
With using the Braille display input keyboard, you can set the on-screen keyboard to be visible in Settings, General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Braille, on-screen keyboard.
Not currently able to be activated on the iPad pro smart keyboard.
