    I am working Brazil as a missionary, so I have both English and Português keyboards installed. Before I upgraded to iOS 11, the dictation feature worked as expected: when I have the English keyboard active, it created English text; and when I had the Portuguese keyboard active, it created português text.
    Now, since upgrading to 11, regardless of which keyboard is active, it tries to create português text. Is there some setting I am missing?

    Have you tried a simple reboot of your device?

    In the dictation view of the keyboard there is a globe, tap that and select in which language you want to dictate.

    Tartarus-as a user of multiple keyboards, I am fully aware of how to switch them. FTR-it has no effect

    My next recommendation is typically for you to select the “reset all settings” option in the Settings. If that doesn’t correct the problem, I don’t know what to tell you aside from a full restore.

    Found the problem!! In settings -> general -> keyboard -> “dictation languages” it lists the languages available for dictation and somehow English had been toggled off. Once I turned it back on it works fine.
    I hope this helps someone else. (By the way this entire post was dictated.)
