Any idea on how to keep this from happening?

We can't think of a direct reason but by any chance, did you leave Dragon's default options to automatically open the miserable Dictation Box when attempting to dictate into a non-Dragon friendly application or window? If so, remove the checkmark from Use the Dictation Box for unsupported applications in Dragon's Miscellaneous options and let us know if this works. Note that  a new smart Dictation Box, called DragonCapture, will be released in a few days. More on that later…  You will find 3 dozen additional critical recommendations in the KnowBrainer Dragon Installation/Training Guide which is complementary to our customers.

hmm that doesn't seem to be it. As soon as I activate the program the little Nuance Dragon logo/ "say that again" icon pops up, then minimizes the fullscreen program. It wasn't like this for Dragon home 13... When the microphone is turned off there's no problem

We concur with Alan but additionally suspect that your sound system is picking up interference. You should not see the “say that again” message unless you are speaking into an area that cannot accept dictation, like  Windows desktop. This sounds like interference which you can test by dictating a sentence into DragonPad and saying play that back.

Check the Recognition History next time a program mysteriously minimizes (DragonBar > Tools > Recognition History).

Is Dragon recognizing anything you say as a command? You can recognize a command in the history as an utterance marked with an "X." If yes, what command?

This could be an audio issue. Your sound system may be interpreting background noise, breath sounds, or electrical interference as one of Dragon's many commands for minimizing a window, including "click minimize" and "minimize window."

Is there a way to disable Dragon's decision to suddenly minimizing the program I'm trying to use it in?

 

As for recognition history, all it shows is <???>

Dragon probably misinterpreted your dictation for a command. Say show recognition history to see what phrase Dragon mistook for a command. You can prevent future accidental command deployment with this information. For example, if you say minimize, by itself, you could trip Dragon's minimize window command.

It isn't recognizing a command.  This is what the history shows.

 

 

EDIT: I just noticed it only minimized the game window, for instance I have the browser open and it doesn't minimize that.  Now I'm more confused.

 

I don't understand.  I was using Dragon with this game since March, somthing had to have changed to make it stop working now. :-(

 

EDIT2: I thought maybe some sound in the game was doing it, so I turned the audio off, but it still happens?

This is so frustrating.  I am disabled and this allowed me to communicate with my friends in-game.  It works just fine here, doesn't minimize anything or detect some strange Utterance, but if I open the game, even with sound off, it just minimizes it but shows no command, just <???>

 

EDIT:  FIXED!   I changed the game to display in Borderless Windowed instead of Fullscreen and am able to use Dragon the way I did previously.  More of a work-around than a fix, but I'm able to use it and that's what counts.
