Is it possible to spell a word to Siri? For instance, if I ask for the stock price of a certain company, she doesn't always understand the company name.
Try saying: "no caps on, no space on", then spell the word, then say "no caps off, no space off".
Actually you can. Try saying letter E letter F Letter G and so on. Similarly, you can also say Numeral five if you want to type 5.
It doesn't work reliably but there are a few commands for spelling things out in Siri. Here's an article about it: http://www.tuaw.com/2011/10/20/how-to-type-comma-using-siri/
It sounds like some Dragon Dictate commands work.
Custom responses and informing Siri of specific words or spellings is not possible at the moment, but Apple itself has stressed that Siri is in beta status. That's not a label they use lightly, so I'd expect big improvements down the road.
You can say
no caps on and
no space on and then spell a word, letter by letter, followed by
no caps off and
no space off and Siri will understand that you spelt a word out for it to interpret.
You can see this in practice in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMNLV-qeou4
The context of the video is spelling words in Notes.app, so it's not clear if this works in all Siri contexts.
I'm afraid that's not possible. You can't force Siri. At least, not yet.
