Trados won't start segment with capital letter using voice recognition

I have a small issue with trados and would like to know if there is a solution or someone else has encountered: I use voice-recognition software "Naturally Speaking 7", which works just fine with any word-processing environment, including MS Word 2000. The problem is that when I use it to translate within the MS Word environment of Trados, the begining of the segment will not start with a capital letter by default. Before I actually dictate the translation, I have to say the macro "Caps" in order to have the segment start with a capital letter, which becomes really annoying. I would very much appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Turn off hidden text... Feb 1, 2005

If you have hidden text visible, DNS doesn't realise you're starting a sentence. Keep it hidden and it works fine (at least with Word 2000, which is what I use).
