    Today I received a new Vodafone Smart Tab Prime 7 Tablet.
    I opened Google Docs to try dictating to a new doc and the microphone shows but remains turned off.
    I am sure it is something really simple but I have no idea. Tapping the icon does nothing at all.
    I have looked in settings and can't see anywhere to turn on voice to text. Searching online I find instructions for Android phones but not tablets. Those say go to settings, language and input and turn on the option but the option is just not there.
    Please can someone point me in the right direction.
    I am used to the iPad but today is my first experience with an Android Tablet.
    Thank you

    If it's brand new and doesn't work, return it.

    Thanks Tony but why would I return it when the problem is not with the tablet but with me not knowing how to set up the microphone?
    Hopefully someone familiar with the device will post a helpful reply

    I have found the answer.

    Go to settings > Language & Input > Keyboard > then turn on the voice to text keyboard as well as the Android keyboard.

    Works like a dream.

    Good job! I thought the mic didn't work.
