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:-)

Another way Apr 8, 2005

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.
