    Hi Chris and Ioana,

    Thanks for taking the time to contact Trint about this feature request. My quick fix solution for you would be to say the words, 'comma' or 'semicolon' and then find and replace all such words with the appropriate punctuation. None the less, I'll send this on to our product development team, and it will help them prioritise how we develop the product in the future. 

    Keep an eye on our Product Development Page so that you can see what we've been working on:

    All the best,

    Yes! I completely agree!! The workload doubles when you have to go through each sentence and figure out where the comma and period are actually supposed to be!

    I use Trint for transcribing video interviews so my need are different to the above posts. However, It seems all gaps in audio are seen by trint as a fullstops. So you you have to go through and manually change them.

    In other similar services if you change a full stop into a comma then the Capitalisation is also changed to lower case. That is a good feature.

    Hi Neil, 

    Automatic capitalisation/reverse capitalisation when you change punctuation is a great idea. I'll pass this on to our product development team.

    All the best,

    In addition, manual punctuation marks would be a great add-on, especially if you are the speaker. It is common for dictation to add punctuation marks such as period, comma, question mark, open/close parenthesis... To convert these words into punctuation marks is probably much easier than finding the right punctuation from the audio. I noticed that a long pause invariably causes a full stop, even in the middle of a sentence. Explicit punctuation would avoid this. A check box in the settings could be added to enable or disable spoken punctuation.
