hi there,

Anybody got a solution for my problem? Upon installing my my copy of Dragon to my new computer I am experiencing a weird problem where I get usual expected excellent operation for most of the day but when coming back after machine has been idle for a while, Dragon will wake up the microphone but then won't perform whatever I say (typing or action) for about 30 seconds afterwards and then, lags periodically after that after sleep/wake cycle of microphone.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Leaving the Dragon microphone in the Asleep state would explain your 30 second delay. NEVER leave the Dragon microphone in the Asleep state for more than a short period of time. When you leave Dragon in the Asleep state, it is still listening and processing sounds. Dragon is waiting for a wakeup command. Environmental noise can overflow the Dragon buffer, unless you change the Data/Options Disk space reserved for playback to 0 Mb. Note that we are not certain about that last bit but this is how we deal with Dragon.

thank you for that, I do have to have it this way afraid for physical reasons, I have a disability that means that I rely on this software so turning it off permanently until clicked is a bit self-defeating for me.

On the buffer issue, yes, I already have it set to that but thank you for the suggestion

as far as environmental sounds, this is in a relatively quiet office environment so whilst there will be a little bit of background hum, this is mostly not relevant.

Did you know that SpeechStart+ was designed by monkey8; one of this forum's contributors, for those with physical disabilities. It includes a number feature that will number everything on your applications and Windows. You can forget about Dragon's MouseGrid. It also includes the ability to turn on the Dragon microphone when it is completely turned off. This is because DragonCapture uses a different speech engine for this command. You won't have to put Dragon in the Asleep state again. And… If Dragon freezes, you can use SpeechStart+ to re-launch Dragon and KnowBrainer. The reason why we say KnowBrainer is because if you check your email, you'll find a complimentary no strings attached download of KnowBrainer 2017. You will find a 15 day trial of SpeechStart+ in our signature tag's Trial Downloads link.
