Hello – I'm teaching an online course using Blackboard Learn. Blackboard uses a program called Wimba for various voice applications: voice messaging, podcasting, etc. Yesterday I installed the podcaster, and today Dragon seems to be acting funny. I can't dictate anything into the dictation box (which is a major handicap). The commands in my e-mail program don't work the way they did yesterday. Some other commands, like maximizing and minimizing windows, are also erratic.

Earlier today, DNS just stopped working for a long enough period that I decided to turn it off and then turn it on again. Could this hangup have been a consequence of the Wimba program? Or is there any chance that exiting and restarting Dragon caused some of the other problems I've been having today?

I did restart the computer this morning, so that shouldn't be the issue.

Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with Blackboard and Wimba. (Blackboard is very widely used, so these issues may crop up again.) I'm not required to use the Wimba material, I could uninstall it, but I'd like to have better information first.

Thanks!

Although we are not familiar with Wimba, our best guess is that the installation of that application damaged NaturallySpeaking. We recommend performing a Repair/Reinstall of Dragon.

Thanks very much. I'll do that. Should I uninstall Wimba?

If Wimba is working then you shouldn't uninstall it because if Wimba damaged NaturallySpeaking in the 1st installation, it will likely do it again.

I mean, should I just remove it and not reinstall it? Make it go away entirely?

No one but you are truly qualified to answer that question but what's the worst that could happen? NaturallySpeaking fails and you have to reinstall it after uninstalling Wimba
