Does anyone know a trick to force dragon to use s or z spelling in UK English? The only thing I can think of is to create two separate profiles and delete all the unwanted s/z variants.

Thanks,

Olly

Edit:
Having said that, I just tried to find and delete the word 'organization' for my s-spelling profile, but it doesn't exist, and yet dragon always inserts the z-form when I speak the word! Does anyone know what gives?

Edit 2:
By the way, I am aware of the dialogue box you can use to tell dragon to always use z/s spelling, but it is a pain to have to change it all the time and it doesn't work in Studio.

I have just found where to change the printed form of a word, but my question is still is there another way to force s/z spelling permanently in a profile?

Shouldn't be a problem Jun 2, 2017

My Dragon always spells organisation like this, and that goes all the words ending in-ation. When I trained it at first, I chose the UK English option, or whatever it's called. I'm dictating this right now on Dragon: organisation, realisation, lyophilisation... etc.

(NB: I had to write "etc" by hand, because Dragon always writes 'et cetera' when I say it...icon_smile.gif

You can fix this by going to the Vocabulary Editor, searching for et cetera, then going to Properties and changing et cetera to etc. : )

need both Jun 4, 2017

My problem is that some clients require me to use the z and others the s. But the solution of creating one profile for each is working for me so far.

Thanks,

Olly
