Hi

I guess I accidentally activated the voice dictation and now my iPad is locked without internet connection. Now I am not able to keyin my PIN and not able to de-activate the voice dictation. Can somebody help me with this?

 

Thanks

    Do you mean the VoiceOver accessibility function or Siri ? If VoiceOver, then how did you turn it on ? If via Settings > General > Accessibility then you should be able to 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 > VoiceOver 'off', or you can do it by connecting to your computer's iTunes : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4064

     

    If you don't know how it cam on then 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.

    i guess i am not sure about the issue. It may not be voice detection. Right now I am locked out and this voice in my iPAD is on which is trying to guide me and repeating back every action I make.

    for e.g. it says - slide to unlock, then when i key in the PIN, it repeats back but the PIN is not actually getting keyed in and iPAD stays unlocked.

     

    Please let me know the issue and the resolution.

    That is VoiceOver. How did it start ? If it just seemed to start then 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 - so to type a digit of your passcode you need to tap the digit so that it gets a box around it, and it should be spoken, and then doublt-tap it to type it) 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
