    Punctuation formatting issues when using dictation in Windows 10.


    The dictation is pretty slick, however it leaves a lot of messy formatting to clean up. For example I dictate a sentence and then say period. It always puts a space before the period. Similarly when i say open quote it always leaves a space after the quote. Is there a configuration I can adjust to remedy this?

    Thanks.


    Rob.

  2. Voice commands to format dictated text in Word?

    Okay, but the issue is not about Word - it is about the commands available for Windows 10 dictation. What commands are available to format text? Are there any commands that exist that are not present on this
    list
    ? If that list contains every possible command, then where would I submit a feature request to include formatting commands in the next reworking of Windows dictation? Again - the dictation software is the problem, not Word. It seems like you are really
    interested in shunting my problem elsewhere instead of saying "I don't know the answer"!

    Punctuation formatting issues when using dictation in Windows 10.

    Dictation time out

    I dictate a lot of my work. Unfortunately, using Word, the dictation icon auto-stops much too quickly, often right after the insertion of a punctuation mark, such as a comma. How do I extend the dictation "auto-on" time to 10 or 15 seconds in Windows 10?
