I've found I can make punctuation happen by saying "comma", or "period", but I can't find the word for new line. I tried "paragraph", and "line break", but it just prints those words.

I found that saying period newline gives you a new line, after putting a periond on the current line.

I've upgraded to Android 4.3 since I asked this question, and this answer seems correct. period newline and period new paragraph both work. –  axiomx11 Aug 28 '13 at 15:58
    
I can confirm this works on Moto X running Android 4.4.2. –  Nick Fishman Mar 9 at 0:19

Android's built-in voice-to-text doesnt support new lines. I've heard that flext9's ( based on nuance's excellent dragon voice to text engine) does, however. You might try that, I haven't used it personally so I can't speak to it's efficacy. Ymmv. Etc.

Not supported? Hmmm.. I was hoping they had it in there somewhere, but I certainly haven't been able to find it, so perhaps you are right. –  axiomx11 Aug 29 '11 at 21:58

In Android 4.0, say "New Paragraph"

For android 4.1.1, I just say "Enter" and it will start a new line.

I said "newline" really fast and it did it on Jelly Bean 4.1. When I said "new line" slower it filled in the words "new line." I guess you just say it quick.
