Text dictation question (re: punctuation)
My first post...be nice.
I'm a current Android user and a frequent user of the speech-to-text feature. Question regarding how the iPhone dictation handles punctuation...
On my Android, if I say something like "I am at the game period (short pause) are you here yet question mark" it will print "I am at the game. Are you here yet?". Are you able to speak the punctuation on an iPhone as well?
Thanks very much!

I tried what you said word for word in Siri. 1 route without saying punctuation, and the other route with punctuation.
In Siri, when speaking if you pause that means it thinks you are done, even a quick pause. To have puncuation in a Siri message. You have to say "I am at the game period Are you here yet question mark than Siri spits out "I am at the game. Are you here yet?" If you don't say the puncuation Siri will leave it out and it will say " I am at the game are you here yet "
Hope this helps. Basically Siri isn't going to do anything you didn't tell it too.
