    new paragraph to start a new paragraph
    all caps to make the next word all uppercaseFor example, saying:

    produces the text:
    I am hungry feed me NOW please
    all caps on … all caps off to make part of what you say uppercaseFor example, saying:
    I am hungry all caps on feed me now all caps off please
    produces the text:
    I am hungry FEED ME NOW please
    no caps to make the next word lowercaseFor example, saying:
    I like no caps Mike
    produces the text:
    I like mike
    no caps on … no caps off to make sure part of what you say is all lowercaseFor example, saying:
    Our friends no caps on Steve and Tina no caps off live in California
    produces the text:

    prevents first-class from being hyphenated, and produces the text:
