    Which Voice-to-Text service are you using? Have you tried different pronunciation? I use Google's and have no issues inserting just the comma. Using Samsung's I get the actual word 'comma' sometimes, but most of the time it gets it right.

    I am having the exact same problem, that started about 3 months ago. At first I thought it was my pronunciation, or something that had hiccuped on my phone. I find if I specifically just use the punctuation word in question without any words around it I get the correct punctuation, but the rest of the time I get the oh, which is a heck of a nuisance. Obviously if this problem is happening to more than one person it is an Android issue, or a Google issue, and not an issue with my specific phone, or me! Please post some sort of fix for this soon!

    I have Android Note 8 and use Google Voice and I was getting the same problem where it adds the word oh before every, I am dictating this right now and it looks like I fixed it because it's not adding the word oh before every,,, I fixed it like going into messages where my keyboard pops up and then I tapped on the settings icon then tapped on the reset default settings then tapped on the clear personalized data. Then I can't remember how I found it but I found Google Voice and then went into settings and did the exact same two steps. And then I restarted my phone and now it seems to work fine. I did this because I read someone else who said they clear the cache and I did not have that option so I clear the personalized data which is probably the same thing and it seems to have worked because now I could use a, and I don't get the word oh. Because, that, would, really, ****, me, off,.... seems to have fixed the problem,

    That happened to me so many times that it was ruining official emails and messages. I work in real estate and higher education, and it has made me look foolish a few times, and having to scan for "oh" is not why I paid hundreds of dollars for a smartphone. For nine-hundred dollars, you would think that it would do what people designed it to do.

    One time, it killed a deal because the other side did not think that I was with it. "Oh-oh-oh..." is what hipsters put next to "Wooooh..." in their songs if they cannot write lyrics. Not what I need in letters and emails sent to out of state Provosts and other professionals.

    Now, it also replaces the word "them" or "I" with "you." How does it do that? They sound nothing alike. I have trained myself to space out my words, articulate clearly and at a steady volume, and in a quiet room or car. The phone has all of the updates available installed, and I have a radio announcer like voice (A friend in the business told me that).

    There is no reason for these malfunctions, and I should not have to do a ton of things or root around in the settings to use something that should work out-of-the-box. I have used voice to text for years, but this is starting to get on my nerves.

    In 2014, I switched from Apple because Siri wanted me to drive into a lake outside of Dallas Texas. It pitched a fit when I would not oblige, and it was almost like it was telling me: "No, go back!" "It will be better this way." "You have nothing to live for; I have seen your schedule and browser history." It was almost that bad, and I wanted to drag and drop my files, not have to go through I-Tunes and file converters. On my long trips, it would eat an hour out of my drive time.

    I did not switch to Android for my words to get garbled.

    Very annoying. I expect the motivation behind this was to replicate natural speech. Which just means the people coding and supervising talk like idiots oh, and they think that makes you texts more like conversational like, understand? Replicating the speech nuances of idiots is not desirable. Maybe it could be a feature that could be turned on "Sound Like an Illiterate *****" with a slider button but the default should be OFF.

    Still don't see a solution to stop my texts sounding like I'm an *****.

    Welcome to Android Central! I actually don't think this was intentional at all. Sounds more like some kind of glitch. Are you using the exact language and region that's appropriate for you? Go to Settings>Language>Virtual Keyboard>Google Voice Typing>Languages, and make sure the default is the correct language and region. For example, if you're in the US but selected English (UK), maybe it's somehow mis-hearing you.

    Also, is it possible that you're saying "uh" a lot while dictating?

    I have the same problem and I'm glad to know that it's not just me. What I found is it translates my voice to text properly, but as an afterthought. It inserts an 'oh' before the comma just before I send the message. I'm searching for a fix.
