Nice to meet you, *****!
There are several ways to do this, so we will try it one by one.
First is more simple one:

  1. On your phone, open any app that you can type with, like Messages or Gmail.
  2. Tap where you can enter text.
  3. At the top of the keyboard, tap Settings. Voice typing.
  4. Turn Assistant voice typing on or off.

Take your time and let me know the result, please.

The keyboard is immediately replaced by the tap to speak display, which I cannot close

Thank you for checking.
Now you need to go this way:

  1. On your phone open Settings.
  2. Go to General management
  3. Find Keybord list and default

In this menu you will be able to see the list of all keybords, your phone has. Simply tap to turn off Voice Typing ones.
There can be several Voice Typing options.
