I have started using Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred 8 with Trados 6.

Windows XP, Word 2000.

I open a segment, speak the translation and close it.

Only problem is that I can never get the translated segment to start with a capital letter (becuase Dragon reads a full stop as a sign to start with a cap, but doesn't have one becuse of Trados segmenting).

How can I instruct Dragon to start with a cap?

Dictate the punctuation Apr 7, 2005

Hi Ailish

You have to say "Cap" before the sentence e.g. "Cap". "You are only standing on my foot".

Thanks:-) Apr 7, 2005

Yes, it works, and I also found the Quick Guide to have the commands to hand.

Thanks Rob:-)

You don't have to dictate the caps if you "hide hidden text", in "options" or whatever it's called in an English version of Word (I use a French version).
I'm using DNS7 preferred + XP + Trados 6 + Word 2002 so I can't be 100% sure in your case though.
