No speech recognition software is 100% perfect. Look at all these common homophones in the English language: List of English Homophones
I have a contact named Leeanne, but it thinks I am saying Lee and .... so it can't ever find the contact. :DCheck out the great deals on Windows Phone Accessories: http://store.wpcentral.com

They should maybe combine buttons on the screen with speech to allow you to add punctuation while you talk. Or maybe certain sounds could be used instead of words...although how can you tell someone 'make a 'click' sound'

I've found that if you speak one sentence at a time, and let it repeat it back to you, it will add a period in between each segment. Just keep saying "add more" to speak additional sentences. Oops, that's for Windows 8 phones. I don't know if it works for earlier ones - sorry!

Appreciate the tips here.
I just bought a cheap Nokia Lumia 610 with Windows 7. It turns out that in addition to 'who/what/when/where/why/how' situations, it will also add a question mark if I start the text with 'Do you...' (as in 'Do you want to go for coffee at 10:30?').
This is a great improvement over my initial efforts (i.e. 'Want to go for coffee at 10:30 question mark.') !
Also works with 'Can I...', 'Are you...', but not with 'Shall' or 'May'.
My phone doesn't seem to have the 'add more' feature, but it does add a period at the end of the text. I guess I'll have to manually add periods if I'm texting several sentences.
