Dragon Medical 4.  The help section states to dictate "make that numbered", which leads to it transcribing those exact words.  Oddly, I can make a bulleted list by dictating "make that bullet style", but numbered lists do not work.  Anyone able to do this?

The only way I can do it is by dictating:

"1 period", followed by text.  "New line"

"2 period"...etc

I find this cumbersome as it is not how I normally dictate and it wastes time.

That's why we created My List <1to20> <dictation> and My Double List <1to20> <dictation> commands (2 out of many). We try to make KnowBrainer do everything that Dragon either can't do or struggles with. You can copy the following My Double List <1to20> <dictation> command into Dragon as an Advanced-Scripting command. Dragon and KnowBrainer both use VBA scripting so most commands are interchangeable.  In the meantime, try the following command in Dragon and note that you won't have to stop. For example, you can say My Double List <1> <how cool is this> which begins by moving the cursor to the end of the current paragraph (think lazy), press {Enter} 2x and simultaneously type 1. How cool is this. Even the 1st word is capitalized. This is what we do with KnowBrainer. If you check your email, you'll find a 30 day trial KnowBrainer 2017.


Command Name:
My Double List <1to20><dictation>

Script:

Sub Main
SendKeys "^{Down}{Left}{End}"
Wait 1
SendKeys "+{Enter 2}"+ListVar1+". "
Wait 1
SendKeys UCase$(Left(ListVar2, 1)) &  Mid(ListVar2, 2)
End Sub

I did like this in word :

- new word oral form "ping" , written form "1.- "

- new word oral form "pong" , written form "- "

In MS Word, when I say ping/pong then type a space, the bullet list is created. Same in outlook.
