I am trying Dragon software and it works fine in my local computer with Trados Studio 2015, but when I have to work connected to a remote desktop using MemoQ, I have a problem: whenever I have to pronounce a Spanish word with special characters á, é, í, ó, ú, the word is broken just before this character and the rest of the word is written in the next segment (or just in another segment, emtpy or not!)

For example, a word like "parámetro" looks like this:

I have tried to do the same in a Word document and the result is:

The remote destop uses Windows server and Office IN ENGLISH, but have just switched MemoQ into Spanish and Dragon keeps failing. The keyboard is of course ESP.

Does this have any solution?

Thanks in advance!
