PTT does what it says. You push it and mic is on so you can talk. You stop pushing, mic turns off. So pressing and releasing it will turn the mic off. You can still use all the other methods to turn a mic on and leave it on and dictate so it's not required to press a button. I use the default Dragon hotkeys but also map a mouse side button and Caps Lock key to trigger that hotkey which triggers the PTT. I also have a macro I can turn on and off that then maps the space bar as PTT too, but pressing and releasing space provides a normal space rather than quick pressing the PTT to turn off the mic (so the macro waits until the space is held for .4 sec before engaging PTT). Alternatively, I use to use the "quick tap release and hold" on the spacebar to engage PTT but found that holding for .4 sec worked better (though I sometimes miss my first word).

If you need a hot key to turn on the mic (not toggle), write a macro that pushes and releases PTT, unambiguously turning off mic first, then presses the mic on/off toggle hotkey and voila the mic is on. . .
