  • You can add punctuation by mentioning the name of the character, for example "comma", "period" or "question mark".
  • To capitalize the first letter of a word, say "capital letter" before the word.
  • Say "Caps Only" before a word to capitalize the entire word.
  • Add emojis to your message by saying "smiley", "frowny" or "winky".
  • To write a number as number (3) instead of a word (three) say "Number 3"
