I ran across this as I was scanning to try to create an FAQ list. if inflamed a long-standing itch

Not so much a question about how to write the code, a question about what standards there exist for #tags, #CamelCase, #Multi-Word_Tags

Background: although I prefer to use speech recognition on my PC using Dragon, sometimes I unavoidably have to use speech recognition on my iPhone or my watch. I try to do as little as possible on my iPhone. I do more my watch, or at least I would do more if apples shortcuts were more reliable.

I often dictate notes or other items that contain #tags on my PC and my iPhone and my watch in various apps.

But .. the treatment of "hashtag ..." is nonuniform

For example, ... in iPhone reminders, in the notes section of a reminder, if I speak "hashtag Harold William" I get "#HaroldWilliam" - i.e. it removes spaces, producing #CamelCase tags. Annoyingly, such spaces are removed as long as the microphone aspect of the keyboard is active. To get spaces back I need to turn the speech keyboard off and then on again.

Whereas if I say "sharp sign Harold William" I get " #Harold William" -- i.e. spaces are not turned off, and I can keep dictating. I just have to remember that multiword tags are not created by default.

(Annoyingly, I do not know the iPhone/Siri way of saying nospace remove the space between words.)

That's OK, I am not particularly fond of #CamelCase. I think I would prefer #Dashed-Words or #Underscored_Words. But... some tag systems terminate the #tag at the 1st dash. underscores less often.

anyway, I had created Dragon commands like "hashtag "

and I was oscillating a little bit to whether "HASHTAG word1 word1"
should produce #Word1Word2, #Word1-Word2, or #Word1_Word2

when I ran into these incompatibilities between PC Dragon and iPhone and various app handling #tag syntax.

whatever I chose to do for PC Dragon "hashtag "
I found I created lots of problems when I was dictating similar stuff on my iPhone.

so I gave up. and track I've overall given up on saying hashtag, because of that bloody blanket disabling.

Q: has anybody mapped out which applications behave how?
