    I've been using voice dictation a lot what with the improved speech recognition on my Q 10. On the Passport how does one invoke the voice dictation.

    I assume with the 0 but I haven't tried that. Also, it's called BlackBerry Assistant just so you know

    There is no 0 on the Passport keyboard though.

    Voice Dictation is the feature when you long-press the 0 on the Q series and you can talk into a text field and it will fill your words. There is even a setting for it in the OS settings where they refer to it as "Voice Dictation". BlackBerry Assistant is more the Siri-like feature; that is invokable just like any current BlackBerry phone I assume: by long-pressing on the media key.

    My bad I forgot about the 0. I'm thinking that since there'll be punctuation on the screen, then you'll have to hold the "." (the period) just like on touchscreen devices
