While amazing, Dragon 15's transcription seems to lag behind in the area of puctuating.  While I know that one can give the puctuation while dictating. I am curious if there are any "tricks" to getting dragon to (attempt) punctuation of raw audio recording?

Nuance has insisted on including the Automatically add commas and periods option (in the Auto-Formatting Options) since Ver. 7 but it has never been usable. It almost works if you can dictate sentences in a maximum of 5 words but since this is unrealistic, you will have to forget about this feature.

Thanks

What a pity.  I have experimented with it. I am not sure if I have ever seen it use a comma. It seems to only be comfortable using periods.   They tend to be correct if the following sentence begins with an "I".

I am surprised there is not a trick to(better) deal with this limitation.

You can add this on a new line at the end in the "soptions" file (open in notepad) found in the "current" folder in your User Profile folder.  Save the file and reopen your user profile and you will find that auto punctuation is enabled.
