Extensive List of Siri’s Dictation Commands for iPhone 4S



The most talked about new feature of the the iPhone 4S has to be Siri, also known as your “personal assistant.” It is such a unique and incredible feature that certain people are trying to port it over to to other devices. Siri can recognize and interpret tons of voice commands that we may or may not know about or think about asking it. We have had fun seeing Siri’s fun and serious attitude in action, but did you know that the dictation aspect of Siri is incredibly advanced, too?

Jim Rhoades has compiled an extensive list of dictation commands that Siri will recognize and respond to. When you’re dictating anywhere in iOS 5 (via the mic icon on the keyboard), you can add complex punctuations to your sentences.

Some examples of these commands can be seen below.

“new line” = move to the next line

“caps on” = hold caps lock

“caps off” = turn caps lock off

“cap” = capitalize the next word

“new paragraph” = start a new paragrap

“space” = stop hyphen from appearing in a normally hyphenated word

“ellipsis” or “dot dot dot” = insert …

“quote” or “quotation” mark = insert “

“apostrophe” = insert ‘

“copyright sign” = insert ©

“frowny” or “frowny face” or “frown face” = insert 🙁
