I‘m using an iPad Pro 10.5 iPadOS 13.5 and a Slim Combo keyboard case. I use dictation a lot. Is there a keyboard shortcut for that? Right now I have to toggle the default on-screen keyboard and touch the microphone key, but I would rather do it with an actual physical keyboard shortcut.
I would also love to have this.
However, as of right now there is no keyboard shortcut to directly start dictation on the iPad.
Currently, the most convenient way, as you said, is to press and hold the downward facing arrow on the bottom right until the virtual keyboard pops up and then press on the dictation button.
