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.
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.
Yes .newline & newline works but timing is everything in this ..
Ex: How to get 3 cr's (2 more below the end of your line)... At the last word in your sentince, either say "period" "newline" or pause and say "new line"
then for each cr/lf additional you want, as soon as you see the blinking line move to the next line, say newline and it will give you another .. and so forth
I use color note to make grocery list. If you say for example bacon new line, then that will be printed on whatever line the cursor is on, i.e. bacon new line. the cursor will not go to the new line.
But, if you say new line bacon, the cursor moves to a new line and puts the word bacon on that new line. Now, if you say new line sugar, the cursor will go to the next line and place the word sugar on that line.
You have to first say new line and then immediately say what you want on that line. In fact, if you say new line newline, the cursor will advance two lines, new line new line newline, the cursor advances 3 lines.
So, know what you want to put on the next line, and start saying it immediately after you say new line.
Just saying new line without any more words will not advance to the next line. In fact it will print the words new line at the current cursor position. You must say whatever you want to appear on the new line immediately after saying new line. Then it works every time. Found this out by trial and error experimenting!!
