I read in another thread that, when in doubt as to whether Dragon is responding to commands correctly, I should try saying "computer" and see if text-to-speech responds "Yes Captain" (or, in my case, "Yes Twisted?". A while back I modified the TTS string to address me better ). I gave that a try, but whereas that worked, commands that use the SendKeys instruction do not seem to be working. The command is recognized as indicated by the Results Box, but nothing happens. Usually when this issue starts happening, I just restart both Dragon and KBPro and it will start working again, but are there any other troubleshooting steps I could try to narrow down the issue in the first place? It seems odd that only a subset of commands would stop working without there being more I could try.

I'm using DNS Premium 13.0 on this computer.
