Lately, sometimes I open Dragon and start dictating and the punctuation commands go weird. I say "close interrogation" (not sure what the exact command is in English, I used the Spanish version) and I get ] instead of ?, when I say "open exclamation", I get ¿ instead of ¡ . It is not a recognition problem, as the words are not similar and even if I try saying them several times I get the same mistake over and over. And then other days I open Dragon and it works perfectly, all punctuation marks are OK.

I use Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium Español Version

Does anybody have any idea what it could be? Have you had any similar problems before? It really slows me down on a bad day as I am working on a book with a lot of dialogue.

Thank you for your help!
