    THANK YOU! I am wondering though, why on my keyboard it doesn’t have the speaker key on the left side of the space bar???

      That’s the dictation button. It is only on the iPhone 4S and new iPad. Even if you have one of those, you have to turn on dictation in the Settings.

    Gary, I have the iPad2 and I am not able to move the keyboard. I have tapped the hide keyboard key, but it doesn’t move. It will split and move, but I cannot move it up and down. Any ideas as to why this may be happening? Thanks.

    BTW, I love your videos. Very informative.

      What happens if you tap and hold the key at the bottom right? Do you get the option to “undock?”
