Hi,

 

did anybody test this new version ?

What about the new scripting engine ?

Any other enhancements ?

There is a world of difference. Previous Dragon releases included the miserable SAX Basic scripting engine which Polar Engineering discontinued in 2006. The SAX Basic scripting engine worked marginally acceptable in Windows Vista but was pitiful in Windows 7 and even worse in Windows 10. We have been pestering Nuance to upgrade SAX Basic to WinWrap Basic for the last decade and they finally caved in with the North American release of DMPE 4.3 (Ver. 15.5) and DPG 15.5. Unfortunately, DPI 15.3 users will have to wait until Nuance releases Ver. 16 or use KnowBrainer 2017 now. KnowBrainer has been using WinWrap Basic for a long time because we found SAX Basic to be unacceptable.


DMPE 4.3 also works better with Outlook but perhaps the most important 15.5 update is stability. Anyone using an earlier version of Dragon is likely experiencing 6 or more freezes per day. This problem has plagued Nuance for a long time and they have been working on it for quite a while. The latest release has of all but conquered the Dragon stability issue. Our DMPE 4.3 and DPG 15.5 crash about once a week but in all fairness, we only reboot Windows every 7 days or so. In other words we are probably asking for trouble but one crash (not freeze) once a week is nowhere near as bad as the 6 freezes per day and many Outlook users experience more freezing.

To confirm what Lunis said, I've had no freezes since upgrading to DMPE 4.3. I would get frequent "lockups" with DMPE 4, 4.1, and 4.2 where Dragon would stop responding for 30 seconds to a minute, leave the recording light on my SMP4000, and then suddenly start responding transcribing everything that had been said in the background. I've not had a single issue like that since upgrading to 4.3.

Unfortunately, I haven't tried out the scripting engine improvements.

It is certainly smoother and more responsive - command wise. I would often get a forced pause after dictating a command to insert txt, but now I can continue dictating without waiting for drg to catch up. Worth the install time.

I'm puzzled, I was unaware that DMPE had any updates since July 2019, I've set it to check for updates with each startup, but have received no notices. I just manually checked, and no updates were identified by software manager.

Do I have a setting off somewhere?

We are not permitted to publicize the DMPE 4.3 download because it comes from the Nuance Dragon Channel private website but you can contact us at Support@KnowBrainer.com for a complimentary secure download.

It no longer checks for updates. Lunis posted a link somewhere to the download.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, the link is posted above.

Thanks, I updated last night after sending that message, downloading from Nuance.

I'm just puzzled by why any company, even Nuance, would have an "software manager" that will check every time I start the program, just to give me misleading information....that must have taken some real planning.

To paraphrase a quote from my very valued ex-colleague Stephan Küpper:

Don't suspect malicious intent when sheer incompetence is a perfectly fine explanation
