Speech to text dictation can be much more convenient than typing on an iPhone or iPad keyboard. Use these Siri voice commands to make it even more useful:
- “Caps” - capitalize the first letter of the next word you dictate
- “All caps” - capitalize the entire next word you dictate
- “Upper case” - capitalize the next letter you dictate (useful for acronyms)
- “Caps on” - capitalize all speech you dictate
- “Caps off” - capitalize none of the speech you dictate
- “New paragraph” - breaks the text and begins a new paragraph
- “New line” - breaks the text and begins a new line
- “No space” - removes the space between the words you dictate before and after the command (for example: “bat no space man” = batman)
- “No space on” - removes spaces between all speech you dictate (useful for password entry)
- “No space off” - deactivates “no space” mode
You can also dictate punctuation marks by simply speaking the name of the punctuation (for example: “comma” or “period”).
