    I had posted a few years back on an error that was hitting more and more people who used Google voice to text for Android consistently. The error was in the word "comma" showing up often where the speaker was trying to insert the punctuation mark ",". After reporting this and getting several replies, a few months later this error disappeared so I hope this will help with the current "comma" command issue.

    Now another error has started hitting Android users and it is the word "oh" showing up more and more often before the "," when the voice command "comma" is used, in other words, I say "comma" and on screen "oh," shows up! It has gotten so bad with my phone that sometimes I'm trying to send an important text and it does not sound very important with the word "oh" intermittently positioned in the middle of sentences, I sound ridiculous.

    Other people experiencing this in my circle have dealt with it by just erasing the "oh" as I have done to this point but it just gets worse so it is time to bring it to light as we did the first "comma" voice command malfunction in Google voice to text.

    Regarding the occurrence of the error, it seems to be less correlated with any type of phone than it does individual Google accounts, whatever that means, it has happened to me on multiple phones.

    I can appreciate the frustration with this, @Doulos Adonai, but as we're just a user forum, it's unlikely anyone in an official capacity with Google/Android will see or act on it here. You might want to file an official bug report and/or use Google's support forums to highlight this issue.

    I have the same problem with the "oh" everytime I try to insert a comma while using voice. I thought it was just my weird voice! I have to check before every text
