    Hi, thanks for reaching out. If you use dictation mode, you can say: "minus zeichen <number>" and it will be transformed into "-<number>". It is currently the same behavior for English, that the minus symbol will only be transformed to the actual sign in dictation mode. Punctuation signs such as "-" are discarded during the data upload. For negative numbers, we recommend to write them plain text, i.e., "minus neun" ("minus 9" is also acceptable). As punctuation exceptions, "9." will be uploaded as "neunter", and "9.4" as neun comma vier. Hope this helps!
