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...

1/ Do you know how to set Dragon to use unbreakable spaces instead of simple spaces, for instance with some punctuations signs?

2/ How can I change definitely the spelling of a word that already exists in the vocabulary? For instance, "cœur" is recognized fine, but it is spelled "coeur". I have corrected it but Dragon keeps writing "coeur". Where can I change that? Haven't found it icon_frown.gif

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.
