What is pages, is this an App?

Check your ipad settings -->General --> Auto-Lock --> choose never

That dose not work. Pages on Apple is the equivlent to Word on a PC. I want the microphone button for dictation to stay on ,or that 30 seconds, so that I can have continual dictation.

Not about the ios version, I saw the message about dictation not staying on.

Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

From what I can tell, there is no way to increase the time. It's set to 30 seconds.

How do I make the dictation button stay on for continual dictation?
Expert:  Cody replied 1 year ago.

I don't think there is a way, it's coded for 30 seconds is all. I will open this up in case someone else has a better answer for you.

No there is no way to extend that in Pages or any other app that uses the built in dictation. It has to upload that to a server to translate it. There are apps that can do it like this one:
