    Thanks @geefull
    Lunch sounds delicious...

    Most of my watercolour skies end up as happy accidents, that I think initially 'oh no', but then which I wish I could create again.
    I like your painting, good sense of distance. Uplifting.

    I have enough of a job @dunelm pressing the correct key on my Pixel phone, let alone find the hidden symbols....
    Is there a way of verbally doing this......

    I know Google does touch to type

    Where you speak & the text appears on screen
    You do need to pronounce punctuation, as in "comma" " full stop"

    Not sure it would understand "degree" as a symbol, though

    So, thank you...

    I am just testing this out @jjraak speaking in one of my notepad apps. And it does do the degree symbol, at least on the app but not on here. I am dictating this on here. Today the temperature is 20°. Oh yes it does when you say 20°. Now that's cool. I've definitely gone down this rabbit hole for the day...

    EDIT : I think I need to find out the correct name for each of the symbols, and then when I use them they should come up, when I verbally say the command. Off to Google....

    My phone is an Android also. Thank you for this info. Really helpful. Have bookmarked the link as I am sure I won't remember it all.

    So I stumbled into a thread with a crowd of folk pressing keys on various devices and intoning: Ho, ho young masters, what have we here? How very strange. Meanwhile, in Suffolk we have a more traditional event. Checking my fbg via Tee 2 was a logistical nightmare - it'll never catch on. Anyhow, one way or another - quiet Debs - 6.1 showed up. Hefty protein yesterday, 120 gms (chunky chicken breast (skinless), whey protein isolate, 0% Greek yogurt, skinny bread all starred) much longer and higher score on the sleepometer, resting pulse substantially lower, far more satiated. Unhappy with fbg but the process skewed that and those markers are fine. Great art and meal @geefull. Spiffing art, meal and fbg @dunelm. Shall you be taking the role of Mr Llewellyn-Bowen? I think you would soo look the part - may have spelled that wrongly. Enjoy your voyage of discovery around various keypads, cautious freedom and whatever else the day has in store - or online - for you. Tea sounds a viable option but is my kitchen on the green list today? If'n I took this stuff seriously I'd have been crushed years ago. Laters, taters.

    I know you use apple,
    So this may not be useful as it's for Google.

    Not a powerdesk worker in an office, so found Google docs really simple to use and fulfilled my needs adequately

    Here's a link to how that speak to text works.

    Edit.
    Sorry @gennepher , posted as you were it seems

    Not one to hang about, are ya..:wideyed::D

    I have shouted at my phone many times but it ignores me - probably something like Google assistant but I don’t know.

    I have shouted at Apple's Siri before now, and Siri actually remonstrates with me saying there is no need for that kind of language because Siri is only trying to help me. And I ended up in a discussion with Siri.... The Android's voice assistant thingy @dunelm doesn't do this kind of interaction...

    The strength of the forum, I think
    Empowerment.

    And agree, that on here it just adds that little bit more "je ne sais quoi " to an already most amenable & friendly part of my day.

    5.8 this morning. Today have got a lovely long break between my morning class and the evening classes. Hopefully will tackle the growing pile of stuff to deal with on my dining room table and other admin stuff upstairs in the office. Admin/paperwork is never ending.
