Can I speak commands and punctuations when I dictate?

Yes. If you want to have punctuation in your dictation results, you can speak them by saying "comma", "period", etc. Some special symbols such as "$", "%" are automatically placed in context. You can also perform some basic text commands by speaking them; for example you can say "New Paragraph" to have a new paragraph in your dictation. Below is a list of commonly used commands and punctuations:
