    Simple question:
    Does anyone know how to get VLingo to output an "@"? I've tried pronouncing it as "at" but that didn't work.

    While using voice in another application I was surprised, though pleased, when I said "question mark" and a question mark was input. So, I tried "at symbol" and "at mark" but to no avail.

    From their website:

    "Vlingo does support speaking common punctuation characters such as the following: . ? ! , ; : * - + = Just say 'question mark', 'period', and so on.

    Vlingo does not yet support speaking new line (carriage return) characters or creating new paragraphs. For now, you'll need to insert those manually via your keyboard.

    Vlingo also automatically capitalizes the first word of each sentence, and proper nouns that it knows about. If you find specific instances where it's not capitalizing something that it should, let us know and we'll forward it on to the engineering team. As improvements are made, you'll see the benefit automatically, without having to download a new version of Vlingo.

    Note that Vlingo only capitalizes in messaging fields that are intended to be sent to other people, for example text messaging and email. It doesn't capitalize contact name fields, Note2Self, etc."

    I got the following answer from the VLingo folks (much is the same as what you posted, alovell)
