My Ipad is behaving in a funny way. It is showing a halfmoon sign on top, doesn't stop talking and dictates everything. It makes me double click every application and I can't scroll down. kindly help

    Hold Sleep and Home buttons to reset it and see if the issue keeps

    For the voice, it sounds like you have VoiceOver (one of the accessibility features) 'on'. Try triple-clicking the home button and see if that turns it off, and if it does you can then change what a triple-click does via Settings > General > Accessibility > Triple-Click Home.


    If that doesn't turn it off then you can either turn it off directly on the iPad (you need to use a tap-to-select and then double-tap to activate/type process and 3 fingered scrolling) to go into Settings > General > Accessibility and turn VoiceOver 'off', or you can do it by connecting to your computer's iTunes : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4064


    For the moon symbol next to the time, you probably have 'do not disturb' turned 'on' (Settings > Do Not Disturb, and Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb)
