There’s a weird quirk that seems to be happening more often when I’m doing speech dictation on Android for text messages. Actually, there are at least two:
- Google adds a space between the number in a time. The time “8:38” becomes “8: 38”.
- Google thinks the period after the first abbreviation is the end of a sentence so that a capitalization should follow.
What’s weird is that I don’t remember this happening before in voice dictation. Maybe there are some debates within Google for how to showcase the terms? There are a few instances where I remember feeling that technology was sliding backwards — voice call quality, peer-to-peer downloads, and now AM/PM (err… a.m./pm?).
