Hi all,

I am a new user of Dragon; I hope my questions have not been answered before, at least I couldn't find the answers...

Thanks in advance!

As far as I can tell there is no way to use a hard (non-breaking/unbreakable) space using Dragon Naturally Speaking 11. All the things I've seen online refer to earlier versions, though it would be quite puzzling if they had removed this function in the latest version.

It would be really useful, so I hope someone can enlighten us.

You can edit the dictionary. Delete the undesired spelling and add the word in the preferred spelling.
