|Notice the Google Voice pop up above|
the settings button?
For unknown reasons the above option doesn't always work so it might be necessary to use on of these extra steps:
If you pull the notification screen down and tap the Select Input Method (keyboard icon) you can then select Google Voice Typing which should launch voice input with a mic symbol and the word listening above it.
If the settings icon is still displayed on the keyboard (the button that looks like a cog); then
hold down the settings icon (for 2 seconds) and you will see a choice of 3 different Icons pop up. (these icons will enable normal keyboard input, handwriting to text and the elusive Google Voice to text option) . Now simply Drag your finger to the microphone and it will be there until you change the settings again.
