Hi all, I think the title says it all. I reset sensitivity to where I want it but as soon as I click to activate the mic in Dragon, I see the sensitivity bar slide straight up to 100% and naturally, this is causing spurious insertions in the text.

Is there any way I can adjust it in regedit to stay where I set it ?

Also, I am not using a DNS mic. I am using a high quality AIWA stereo array mic that is positioned at the top of my monitor. I know the mic is not the issue because I have a parallel setup in win XP which works perfectly.

Thanks in advance for your kind replies.

The problem is NaturallySpeaking 10.1 and below are not fully compatible with Windows 7. You need to upgrade to version 12.

TOPIC STARTER
I discovered a workaround Oct 12, 2012

Hi Tom,

yes I discovered that later but I developed a workaround anyway. The trick is to set the mic sensitivity back to where you want it after the app is running, and then "pause" Dragon with the slash key, don't actually disable it. It works like a charm.

I do intend to upgrade later but I'm one of those "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" type of guys.

Cheers,
Ward
