I noticed in DPI 15.0 and subsequent versions that no matter how many times I would try to train the vocabulary, it would consistently misspell "Jim as "Tim." I found another word several weeks ago that it misspells as "Jim," but I can't remember that word so that I use it instead.

Has anyone else seen this problem? I couldn't find it when I searched for discussion threads about it. If someone has a solution, I would love to know about it. The only workaround that I can find it is to dictate the first name with the last name, and then delete the last name. It is a frustrating problem for such a ubiquitous name.

This problem cannot be solved by training individual words.

Your solution - dictating the first and last name as a single phrase and then deleting the surname - is a little arduous, but as solutions go, it's not bad. In the long run, you will spend less time doing what you're doing compared to training monosyllabic, similar-sounding words (which is a futile exercise!)

If you are constantly dictating certain names that Dragon will always struggle with, one solution may want to consider is to provide additional acoustic context to these hard-to-recognize words via the Vocabulary Editor. For example, add a new word with written form "Jim" and spoken form "Jim at work" or "brother Jim" or whatever.

I would be cautious about creating too many of these entries, but I think a few are okay.

It doesn't seem like Jim and Tim are even close enough, phonetically, to be easily confused by Dragon. If this is a problem for you, the issue is either with your sound system or with your enunciation.

I sign a lot of my emails "Jim" and have never had a problem. But maybe Dragon is just used to the way I talk.

You could do what we did and just change your name to “Big Kahuna”. OK, that might not be an option but you could create a Written Form/Spoken Form ala Jim/killer. You might also consider creating a signature tag that does more than just type your name.
