Since my upgrade to 15.61 there are frequent instances where the first word or two that I dictate is not heard as shown in the Results Box. I notice it mostly in Chrome. I use DragonCapture with AutoPaste and TypeMode 3 checked.

I think that the recognition rate might be down a bit too. 

Microphone check redone. I notice very little response on the microphone check bar but I don't think that ever moved much.

I have not changed  anything else from 15.1 which worked pretty well.

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

Sounds like the perfect opportunity to check out Auto Box

 

Where you won't first have to try "four different type modes" to get it to work

 

Fully automatic transfers without tedious manual corrections afterwards, because you have full Select-and-Say control

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”.

My initial experience is that the problem is gone. Thank you, Lunis.

But you say this is just for test purposes. What is the downside of leaving the auto-gain feature off?

The advantage of auto-gain control is that Dragon automatically adjusts your volume level to the "theoretical" best sound input level. You can also switch microphones without rerunning the Microphone Check. The advantage of the manual approach is that you control everything. As long as you maintain the approximate same distance and volume level, it should be ideal. It didn't seem to make much difference for us but many end-users are better off with the manual approach.
