    To save you having to navigate away from MacTalk I have copied and pasted them below

    .
    new line move to the next line (like pressing “Return” on a keyboard)
    new paragraph to start a new paragraph
    all caps to make the next word all uppercaseFor example, saying:
    I am hungry feed me all caps now please
    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:
    Our friends steve and tina live in California
    space bar to prevent a hyphen from appearing in a normally hyphenated wordFor example, saying:
    This restaurant is first space bar class
    prevents first-class from being hyphenated, and produces the text:
    This restaurant is first class
    period .
    comma ,
    apostrophe ‘(although in many cases, apostrophes are automatically inserted, like when saying Sam’s new iPhone)
    exclamation point !
    question mark ?
    ampersand &
    asterisk *
    open parenthesis (
    close parenthesis )
    open bracket [
    close bracket ]
    open brace {
    close brace }
    dash -For example, saying:
    This dash is dash my dash cheese
    produces the text:
    This – is – my – cheese
    (note the difference in spacing between this and when saying hyphen)
    hyphen -For example, saying:
    This hyphen is hyphen my hyphen cheese
    produces the text:
    This-is-my-cheese
    (note the difference in spacing between this and when saying dash)
    em dash —
    percent sign %
    copyright sign ©
    registered sign ®
    section sign §

    Please note at this point in time any reference to address or maps is USA only. I however am not able to confirm this. Apple has advised that international maps and other features including language support will updated in 2012.


    Details below from Appleinsider. Please note this is early days and updates could happen much faster

    Apple's list of frequently asked questions related to Siri notes that Maps and local search with Yelp are currently only available in the U.S. Remaining features, including Phone, Music, Calendar, Contacts, Weather, and Web search are available to international users, though Wolfram|Alpha integration is available in English only.

    Siri remains in "beta" at launch, and it understands English from the U.S., U.K. and Australia, as well as French and German. Apple has promised that Siri will support additional languages in 2012, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian and Spanish.

    I've found Wolfram useful for maths, conversion of currency and temperatures from C to F.
