    I'm sorry if this is a repeat - I searched but didn't see what I was looking for.

    I am loving the voice commands on WP, but I can't find any tips or tricks on how to use it better. For instance, I can't seem to figure out how to speak punctuation in a text or start a word with a capital letter, things like that. Is there a resource somewhere that I'm overlooking?

    Thank you in advance for any help, and double thanks in advance for not yelling at me for not being able to find the thread that I'm sure already exists on this :)

    I think the punctuation is automatic, and you can't dictate punctuation (I've never been able to in my experience). I don't know about capitalization.

    In my experience, it doesn't capitalize names automatically, and doesn't seem to know when I'm excited enough for an exclamation point.

    Dragon Talk won't help you with that either.

    Tellme is just for quick responses and commands, it's not made for writing a novel.

    No voice dictation software is perfect, and they won't ever be perfect. Just look at how many homophones we have in the English language: Homophones - Your Complete List of Homophones

    I have a contact named Leanne and every time I say her name it thinks I said Lee and.

    Maybe I'm thinking wrong? TellMe is what handles the text-to-speech on Windows Phone, yes?
