When you are correcting a term, let us say, you mean to say "boorish" twice on a page – and DNS interprets that as the name "Boris" and you just want to jeep dictating, and correct it all at once later– can you do a global change?

As an example, you recite "correct Boris" To change it to boorishand it puts a small flag number next to the first incidence of Boris, as well as the second incidence.

I get tired of saying, "correct Boris" "choose 1", then having to do it again to fix the second incidence of "Boris". Is there some command, such as "correct all" (which I have tried) to correct all incidences of Boris, changing it to the word boorish, at least on the visible screen?

Thanks for your help.

1. If you say select <dictation>, Dragon will number each appearance as usual


2. Say choose all to bring up the Spell That Correction Dialog box. It will look like you are only correcting one but after your correction, all numbered words will be changed

It took us a moment because we don't use this feature and removed the checkmark from Enable multiple text matches. If you only want to correct, delete or edit the last misrecognition, it is much faster than having to additionally say choose one. However you just pointed out the advantage of leaving the checkmark. It's really a matter of personal taste

Is that a 15.6 (and up) feature? It sure does not work in DPI 15.3...




You will be interested in SP 7 PRO's Quick Correct©.

It is the fastest, most voice-ergonomic and visual way to quickly edit multiple occurrences of words/phrases in one go with Dragon.


Here is the demonstration video:






By the way, the AIO Dictation Box© has this feature directly embedded, as you can see in this demonstration:

If your text editor or word processor supports search and replace -- and most do -- that would be a good method.

But the effort may not be worth it if there are only two instances!
