How can we improve Word for iPad & iPhone (iOS)? Vote for an existing idea or share a new one.

Crashing after iOS12 update while using dictation

Word app crashes when dictating with the microphone feature ever since iOS12 update. App simply vanishes and needs to be rebooted. No issues prior to iOS12 update. Microphone dictation feature still works with all other MS apps for iPhone

    Same issue, although ironically when I first applied the 12 upgrade Excel’s microphone broke but word was still working, but after I applied the next word update, the microphone broke on it as well.

    There is a thread about this on the Excel uservoice as well, and a tip that one of the other commenters gave me was that you can send feedback on the mobile app by tapping on the settings icon when you first open the app – there is a feedback option under there.

    I just updated to iOS 12.1 but the problem persists. For me this is very serious as my iPad Pro is my only business computer and I rely exclusively on dictation.

    Same for me. Sometimes it works fine but sometimes closes the app. Very annoying.
