Using Dragon Naturally Speaking (13, Premium), I succeeded in dictating numbers into a complex form, requiring me to map Studio segment numbers for occurrences of terms in a glossary a client required me to compile.

Instead of placing the cursor in a cell, first select the cell, then place the cursor on the input line to right of the grey bullet with "fx" in it. One needs to dictate slowly and clearly, to let the software adapt to an alien environment, but I saved myself time, obviating the need to summon up the Dictation Box at every new cell.

I hope I'm not re-inventing the wheel, and I hope this helps.

With kind regards,

Adam Warren
