Punctuation Commands for other languages

Greetings! 

 

(I am not sure, should I post this in Sony Phones forum, or to Google) 

 

I purchased this phone about two weeks ago. 

I have enjoyed using it so far.

 

There is one problem I have ran at. 

When I am using Google speech-to-text, I have problems commanding periods, commas and such within my native language (Finnish). 

 

 

Any ideas? 

Thanks for the help!

Re: Punctuation Commands for other languages

Hi @Damaskox, welcome to the community. Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

 

I have been looking around for you and from what I can tell the punctuation seems to be in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian only. So, no Finnish for now.

Thanks for the reply! 

 

I did try to use English while commanding punctuation while speaking Finnish otherwise, but unfortunately those appear in written words (when I say Comma in the middle of a Finnish phrase, it prints out "comma" instead of ",") 

 

Maybe Google doesn't like swapping languages while talking.

@Damaskox, it may be having difficulty with the language swap.

 

What happens if you talk completely in English, does it recognise the commands?
