Putting a space between case words using speech recognition

Hi, just a simple question; I'm wondering if it's possible to use a space in a case name because I am using Speech framework. This is my code:

 enum Color: String {
    case Red, Orange, Yellow

    var create: UIColor {
        switch self {
        case .Red:
            return UIColor.red
        case .Orange:
            return UIColor.orange
        case .Yellow:
            return UIColor.yellow
        }
    }
}

If I want someone to have to say "Red Rectangle," instead of just "Red," is this possible? If so, how would I write it in the code?
Thanks in advance.

It's not possible to put a space in a case name (even in backticks). There are a few alternatives, e.g. manually implementing RawRepresentable for your enum.

You can add a specific raw value for the cases with spaces:

enum Color: String {
  case red, orange, yellow
  case redRectangle = "red rectangle"
}

let red = Colors(rawValue: "red") // .red
let rect = Colors(rawValue: "red rectangle") // redRectangle

Note that I used lowercase case names; it's a convention in Swift to use lowercase for case names.
