List of OS X dictation commands
Authored by: dilvish1984 on Sep 21, '12 01:45:27PM

From some additional experimentation on iOS, it seems that maybe the trick is sentence flow?

If I say: "I wonder if this is from the Devonian period", I get "I wonder if this is from the Devonian." whereas if I say "I wonder if this is from the Devonian period that I studied in college period" I get "I wonder if this is from the Devonian period that I studied in college."

Weird -- this seems awfully non-deterministic and likely to break in many different ways (for example, I can't figure out how to dictate a sentence like "How would you get it to type the question mark symbol?" no matter what I try... it always comes up with something like "How would you get it to type the? Symbol?")
