    I know more Neals than Neils, and use voice to text often. How can I get it to consistently type "Neal" when I say the name? It always types Neil.

    I'm using a Note 10 with the Gboard keyboard.

    Did you try to add Neal under settings .. personal dictionary?that might help ..


    Edit I realize it's voice ..I thought if you kept correcting the word. It might be smart enough to start using it going forward, but I've not tested it..

    Curious that it doesn’t type “kneel”.

    I just thought of Neil Peart. If my phone spelled his name wrong, I'd be ticked.

    Nyall and Niall are also sometimes pronounced with a long e. So we have Neal, Neil, Kneel, Nyall and Niall. There may be hundreds more for all we know. Let’s hope so.

    RIP. An absolutely amazing drummer.

    Anyway, I have a close friend who I message all the time spelled Jarrod, but Assistant always types his name is Jarred. I might try the method above to get it to type the name correctly.
