    Voice Recog Puts in Nonsense Words?

    OK, I love my Photon but it's my first Android phone (Blackberry before that), so excuse me if this is a stupid question...

    I use voice to text quite a bit, and it's been getting better and better over the last year, recognizing a lot of speech with no problems, and even when I say slang-y things like "y'all" or "frickin'". One of my favorite features is that I can say "period," "exclamation point," and "question mark" and it puts the appropriate punctuation in. Being a little Type A, that makes me happy.

    However! Lately, when I say "comma," it is occasionally recognizing that as "kama" and putting that word in, instead of the punctuation. Not all the time, just sometimes - mostly just often enough to be annoying since I have to go edit my texts. So my question is this - how can I remove words from the VtT dictionary? I tried adding it to my user dictionary and then removing it, but that's not fixing it.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks much!

    This has started happening more and more frequently to me as well. At first it was just occasional, but in the past few days I've begun to get "kama" about 80% of the time. Obviously, the phone hears the sounds I am making, since "kama" would be a phonetic spelling for "comma." And maybe once in a blue moon someone refers to the kama sutra or something, but 99.9999999% of the time that thing hears those sounds, it's going to be asking for a comma, not "kama!" So why is kama becoming the default now? Did some update do this?

    This is really making speech recognition nearly useless. I mean, look at how many commas are in this post here, or any of them - people use commas a lot! I'm about to throw my phone against the wall in sheer aggravation with the idiocy of a non-word being default-chosen over the most commonly used punctuation mark.

    Please please, does anyone have a solution?

    OK, weirdly, the "kama" thing stopped, but now any curse words I say come up with asterisks instead. And no, I don't have the box ticked to block offensive words. I love my Photon but WTF....

    Does the swear filter kick in when you're typing or when you try to post with profanities included in the text?
