Hi guys,
Judging from the deafening silence you are all in Dragon virtual machine heaven and might just be a little bit puzzled by my problem!
I'll be really grateful if you could share a brief synopsis of what works for you with Dragon in a virtual machine. Would be delighted to try other approaches.
Thank you all so much.
Kind regards

It seems to be more of a Parallels problem than a Dragon one.

Dragon only uses whatever microphone the underlying OS provides and if your Parallels loses the audio device at some time, there's nothing Dragon can to to bring it back.

Perhaps a parallels forum will be suited better?


I guess that (in combination with very few people using Dragon on a Mac) is the reason for the silence you experienced.
