I've had an intermittent problem with DNI professional individual starting around 14 or 15. For no apparent reason Dragon stops recognizing dictation (it will recognize commands) in fields where it previously recognized dictation. Instead, I get the "please say that again" message. For example, I use Dragon with Quicken. In making entries into Quicken, there are several fields such as the date field, the payee field, etc. All of a sudden, when trying to dictate the number into the field for the amount of the entry amount of the deposit or payment) I get that message. Certain other fields in other programs start having that problem as well. For instance, in Timeslips, a time billing program, the field where you type in the clients name to bill to that client has also suddenly started to exhibit that behavior.(the The problem is solved when I reinstall Dragon that is suboptimal as that can be time consuming and disruptive.

Has happened with Windows 7 professional, Windows 10 professional, 32 GB of RAM, 500 GB hard drive, i5 processor, currently using Dragon Professional Individual 15.60.

 



Any ideas?

That's probably related to the issue discussed here:

In my experience, this just happens, and it's not clear why. It could be the nsapps.ini file, but often it is not. I don't have any great ways to fix it, except trying to see if restarting the computer helps.

As an alternative, you might also give DragonCapture a try. Fully automated trial for 30 days with no need to bother having to  contact anyone. - As opposed to the poor man's implementation of trial software provided by Rob Maulemann (which is German for "loud mouth", by the way).

Slightly less intriguing perhaps if you want to avoid tedious manual corrections afterwards, particularly if you don't have 100% Dragon accuracy .

 

Why not turbocharge your entire Dragon® experience with a large suite of powerful add-ons? Effectively dictating into speech unfriendly applications with automatic transfers AND full Select-and-Say control! This is just one of the many exciting features of SP 6 Standard.

Want even more? Then check out SP 6 PRO, there is a demo available.

 

Sending a demo request to speechproductivity@gmail.com takes very little effort. Just about as much as activating the demo version of our socially skilled German competitor.

That by the way, also requires your email address except his "automated" activation system isn't so smart

 

I on the other hand, prefer a more personal touch (so does my customer service).

Andrew, we sell DragonCapture for $25 so we are not exactly getting rich. We simply believe in the technology. We started using DragonCapture for exactly the same reason you pointed out; because we couldn't directly dictate everywhere. For example, all browser address fields are Dragon no fly zones. Many end users can directly dictate into a browser address field until one day when they can't. DragonCapture simply puts an end to Dragon's finicky non-Dragon friendly environments.
