    Punctuation with voice to text

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to add punctuation when using voice to text?
    I have a P8 and whats app, sms and email I use voice to text (it is remarkably accurate), but there is no punctuation.
    Surely there are voice commands?

    One of the better answers I found.

    If it is anything like Dragon Naturally Speaking, one of the things you'll be wrestling with is that the name of some punctuation marks vary according to the "language".

    The classic example is English US uses "period" while English UK and English SA uses "full stop" for that punctuation mark that appears at the end of this sentence.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Actually it ws quite easy.
    I say comma, you type comma.

    I am happy with the basics.
    It works really well. Typing with SWYPE is faster, but if driving it helps

    Can't you just make up your own short words to use as indicators for the various punctuation marks?
