Hi folks,

I told you I would check back to give you an update, so here it is:

My DNS software works better now, at least for German. Since I own the pro version I can also dictate in English, in theory, but I' m at a loss to understand where to get the English commands??

The booklet that came with the soft. covers only German commands. The help and tutorial files on the disc offer only the important commands for English. Thats pretty poor for a 900 Euro soft. isn't it? Google also offers just basic command lists. An in-dept description of all features and problems that may arise would have been helpful. I wonder what makes this version pro, ah yup the price right..? Not very advanced and a pain in your....... is my conclusion. So many question come up and no one to turn.

Any idea?


Also:

Recognition of single letters in the spelling modus does not work at all although general recognition is fine now. How can I train the spelling modus? No clue on that..... It writes h when I say a or e when i say b and so on...

Look for PDF manual on the CD Nov 11, 2007

There is an English manual on the CD (PDF file), and the online help is displayed in the language of your profile.

Regarding the recognition of single letters, it has never worked satisfactorily for me. I hardly ever use this function, but when I do, I speak the extended versions: "x wie Xaver", "N wie Nordpol" etc.

Hm Nov 11, 2007

I cannot access the files on the Cds because there is always an auto installation. Once installed there is no pdf file. In which folder is the pdf supposed to be?

pdf damaged Nov 13, 2007

I get a message that the pdf file is damaged and cannot be opened with adobe reader although the cd is fine without any scratches. I called customer support and they told me a full list of commands would also be in the help and tutorial files of the program once installed. I can only find a small list of commands there.

Preferred will also let you dictate in English, at least the German version I bought.

Thanks to everyone but.. Nov 28, 2007

Does anyone have a complete list of commands for Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I need the commands for English and German. I have the user guides for both language pairs but I obviously need them on two lists for quick reference. I would compile the list myself but I have bought Dragon because my right arm is temporarily disabled and I am unable to compile the list at the moment. Or does anyone know a web location where I could find all commands in a logical order. The Command Center is not very effective for this purpose. I tried to dictate the list but without the commands it is nearly impossible.

One other thing: if you add a new word from the menu bar, what happens if this word already exists in the vocabulary but you didn't know that. Or does the program recognize the duplicates. Also should I add the singular and plural forms of the word?

One last thing: anyone experienced the same problem in Word 2007? Whenever I say “spell that” the program always understands expand that.
