I can no longer dictate directly into the Search Box and must use the Dictation Box. I am using version 12.5. Is  there a way  to fix my problem?

Thanks,

First of all, using the correct forum would help.

This one here is for the built-in speech recognition in Windows.

Since you noted a version 12.5 I guess you're using that antique Dragon NaturallySpeaking version.

The "Dragon Speech Recognition" forum is the one you're looking for.

Good call Mav. We moved this thread to the right forum.

Unfortunately, the single browser that was truly compatible with Dragon, Internet Explorer, is no longer being supported by Microsoft. The best alternative (although not as good as Internet Explorer was) is to use Microsoft Edge with the Dragon browser add-in for Chrome. However, the add-in is only available for versions 13 and later of Dragon.


(I was a happy user of version 11.5 until the beginning of 2021; it was the need for Dragon compatibility with modern browsers that forced me to upgrade to Dragon 15.61.)

dskzeus, 

 

There are probably 100 reasons to upgrade to DPI 15.61 but this isn't 1 of them. Beginning with Ver. 13, Nuance started making it difficult to dictate into non-Dragon friendly apps. We suspect that Nuance simply didn't want to take the support calls. Beginning in Ver. 15, Nuance kicked it up a notch by setting a default option to automatically open the Dictation Box in non-Dragon friendly fields. Gr...   About the only thing we like about Ver. 12 is that you should be able to directly pretty much anywhere.

 

Short of upgrading, the only thing we can think of would be to look up “How To Enable Dictation In Non-Dragon Friendly Apps” under the Quick Tips button at the top of this page
