    Voice Typing & Search Commands and Tricks

    I've been searching the web for voice typing commands I can use on my N7, particularly when typing text in the body of a GMail. I found if I say the word "period" - it inserts a period, and not the word "period".

    What I'm trying to figure out, is how to start a new paragraph - I have tried "enter", but get the word "enter" - I have tried "new paragraph", but it types those words too.

    There has to be somewhere these are documented - or maybe you have found some voice typing commands yourself, that you can share with this community.

    Anyone?


    P.S. Has anyone tried saying "movie times" to Google Now Search? Kinda cool... :-)

    also discovered...

    saying the word "comma" will insert a ','

    saying the words exclamation mark will insert a '!'

    there must be others...

    "Sad face" also works. :-(

    I sure can't find anything to start a new paragraph. Tried "down", "new paragraph", "enter", and so on.

    I know... it's bugging the _ _ _ _ out of me! It would be nice to discover how, would make taking notes, like a list, hands free... Gives me a sad face! (thanks for your tip on the sad face!!)

    Wow! I can't believe there is no command for [New Paragraph] and [New Line].
    I am an experienced user of speech recognition products on all platforms other than Android.
    In fact, I am using the dictation feature in Mountain Lion to compose this post. It's not perfect either, but it does include the above commands.
    The prospect of off-line speech recognition in a portable device is enough to get me to order a Nexus 7.
    Without these basic commands however, speech recognition is not useful for anything more than one or two sentence text messages.

    I am completely new to android however. Please let me know if I am mistaken.

    Voice Action commands - Google Mobile Help

    As far as any answers I've found nothing except an unanswered XDA thread.

    Hmph....not even Next of Next Line or Jump or Space or anything??

    Hmpff is right... there has to be a way though... Or perhaps a JB update will bring more functionality to this awesome technology.

    lola actually works though, well sometimes. Return and enter don't work.

    another thing that is kind of annoying is that the auto capitalizationis always on, so when you go back to fix something in 1 of your sentences, you have to remember to turn it off. Does anyone know if there is a way around this feature?
    because sleep is for apple users who have nothing better to do...
