Dear colleagues,

I have been using DNS for quite a long time now, together with SDL Trados Studio 2014. After I upgraded to DNS13, suddenly I can't get any commands to work in Studio. Any commands I speak are typed verbatim. When I change over to Word, everything works fine, so it doesn't seem to be related to any settings?

Nuance support hasn't been particularly helpful:

"There has been no version of Trados that we have tested and/or certified with any version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking. We are aware of many users being able to dictate into Trados, but any functionality is down to chance. There are no guarantees in place and sadly nothing we can suggest to resolve any issues regarding the dictation or use of voice commands in Trados."

Has anybody been able to make commands work with DNS 13 and Studio 2014?

Many thanks in advance,
Erik

good question ...also, DNS 13 in general Sep 19, 2014

I've been holding off the upgrade because some of the features appear to me to be moving towards simplicity to the expanse of quality: not using a specialized microphone, not learning, etc. From my (very educated on the matter) perspective, these choices cannot lead to an increase in recognition accuracy

My first experience is that recognition accuracy and especially recognition speed have indeed increased perceptibly compared to DNS12.

However, not being able to use commands for editing and correcting is a big tradeoff. Overall productivity certainly was better with DNS12.
