Does switching off AutoPaste (simply say "AutoPaste" to toggle between on an off) make any difference?


No need to buy if all you want to do is try ...

Turning off Auto Paste  does not affect the problem. Indeed, turning off DragonCapture does not change it.

The problem also occurs when I  dictate into Word

It seems to have a  prevalence of about 5%  of my dictations.

I saught support from Nuance on two phone calls. They had me start a new user profile. No change.

There were no changes in hardware or conditions except moving up from 15.1 to 15.61

Occasionally losing the 1st word in your dictation typically occurs when attempting to dictate over a network or a substandard microphone.

However, this is also possible when using Dragon's default auto-gain control; especially in DMPE 4. Many of our physician customers have accuracy issues with Dragon's default auto-gain setting. Just for test purposes, you might consider turning off Dragon's auto-gain feature? This procedure is detailed in your KnowBrainer Medical Manual and the Dragon Quick Tips at the top of this forum, when you look up “auto-gain”.
