I have just started to use Googles speech to text on my Sony Xperia Z3+ and it is very precise, both in English and Danish. But I cannot get it to write any punctuation in either language.

A period would be just fine, but if I dictate in English and say "period", it writes the word "period". I have also tried "dot" and in Danish "punktum". There is a settings button, but no option to fix this.

The funny thing is, that if I pause, it will capitalize correctly, like there were a . but I still have to add them afterwards.

The most frustrating part is, that when I search for solutions, the solution is to say "period" or replies to people who want to have the literal word written.


Maybe it is your inflection, that is, the rise and fall of tonal character. Saying the word "period" works for me.

I say "PEER-Ee-uhd", falling in tone as I say the word.
