Hi everybody,
I am thinking to buy DNS 11 pro to use it with Trados studio 2011.
I already have DNS 10, which has some problems when used in Trados Studio (doesn't capitalize the first letter and is pretty slow).
I would like to know if someone has tested the latest version of DNS on Trados Studio 2011 and if it works well.
Thank you very much for your help.

Yes, works fine Oct 31, 2011

I have DNS 11.5 and Trados 2011. Work fine together.
Still no capitalisation of the first word in a sentence.
Speed is adequate. Dragon 11.5 recommended – an improvement on the already much improved Dragon 11.

Similar performance with Studio 11 Nov 10, 2011

Same performance, same problems.

I spoke to SDL development people at the ATA conference and they noted:

1. Their lack of compliance with MAPI speech recognition standard. I described to them the problems (lack of capitalization, slower speed, etc.) that result.

2. Studio 11 seems to have a memory leak associated with adding terms to the termbase. After a while (30-60 minutes of work), this can slow down speech recognition and even typing significantly. The problem is solved by rebooting Studio, which is usually not a big deal, but annoying. SDL has noted the error and promises to fix it in the first service pack.

French speakers: missing accents Mar 1, 2012

French translators: do you also experience the problem of missing accents aigus when using Dragon 11 with Trados Studio 11? If so, does anyone know a solution for this (rather annoying) problem?
