Has anyone else noticed that Dragon (DPI 15) is no longer supported in MemoQ 8.1 (64 bit version)? I have noticed that the last few 64 bit versions do not work with Dragon, but I worked around this by using the 32 bit versions. However, MemoQ 8.1 no longer supports dual versions; you can only use the 64 bit version if you have a 64 bit computer. I have contacted support, but they don't seem worried. Has anyone else noticed this issue or heard anything from MemoQ about it?

DPI 15 crashes on me Jun 16, 2017

I'm not sure what you mean by "DPI 15 is not supported," but I had to roll back to 7.8 because 8.1 crashed every single time I tried to speak text into a target segment. Is the same thing happening for you?

When I contacted Support about the crashing, they said, "this is a known issue in memoQ 8.1.3 and our developers are working on the fix. We will send you an email you when it is fixed."

Because of the amount I translate every day, I am absolutely dependent on Dragon. So I'm hoping they get the issue sorted sooner rather than later.

Cryptic error message when I start dictating Jun 17, 2017

I have the exact same problem – as soon as I start dictating, MemoQ will open a popup with an error message; when I click OK to close it, the message instantly reappears, which goes on indefinitely, and the only thing that helps is closing MemoQ via the Windows Task Manager.

I worked around the issue by going back to MemoQ 2015, which works perfectly. Still it's somewhat bothersome that I cannot use MemoQ 8.1 right now. I hope they'll fix that bug quickly.

It works now Jun 22, 2017

I am happy to report that with the latest update this bug was fixed.
Dictating in MemoQ 8.1 now works as smoothly as in older versions.

Thanks, dear Kilgray team, for taking care of this.
