Separate names with a comma.

I haven't found the answer anywhere. Does anyone know if this is possible?
Searched again this morning with no luck. This is pretty annoying...I use the comma often and I also like the speech to text. I can access that quickly by swiping across the keyboard so I would love to get the comma button back without disabling STT
It would help a little if we knew why you didn't have these options.
Some more info please.
I have 2.1 on a non rooted Motorola Droid and speech to text is enabled, therefore the comma button on the virtual keyboard has been replaced with a microphone button.
To get the comma button back you have to disable speech to text which I do not want to do.
I would like to know if there is a way to get the comma button back while keeping speech to text enabled, since a horizontal swipe across the keyboard does the same thing as pressing the microphone button.
That's no good... I don't know how I could do it with the stock keyboard, but are you up for trying a different keyboard?
The htc_ime has both buttons and the keyboard works much better than stock.
You also don't need root.
Thanks for the tip on the HTC keyboard. I'm going to try to make my own custom skin tonight.
you could just hit the "123" button, which turns the speech to text button back into the comma
That works, but its an extra key press for something that never should have been moved...Long pressing the period key works too
I agree that it's kind of annoying having the button there, especially when I don't use it that much, but I've gotten fast enough with the virtual keyboard and the physical one that any extra key presses are unnoticeable.
I think it would be awesome if all keyboards supported all letters, numbers, etc AND they all have swiping capabilities AND speech to text.
I guess we want to much fellas.
I don't think a comma key is too much to ask for. I may be one of the few people that try to text with correct grammar, and having to switch to the numbers screen for each comma annoys me, too, especially since the comma USED to be there.
I like speech to text, but I like my comma more. Both would be ideal! I'll try the HTC keyboard out and see how I like it.
I don't think so. No comma bugs me too. There is enough real estate in the space bar to shrink and have a mic AND a comma
