I've been using DNS9 Preferred for the last few months and it's been working fine. However, I've had a slight problem this afternoon with a message that keeps popping up while dictating:

"NS has reached the max amount of speech data that can be saved. You may continue dictating but some speech data may become unavailable"

Any way I can rectify this? It looks like I need to free up some space somewhere.

Many thanks!

an idea... Mar 14, 2007

Marcus,

This may not be the source of the problem, but have you tried closing the program and clicking the box that appears at that point asking if you want the data saved?

I had this problem when I had Preferred "read" an audio file--it quickly maxed out, but I saved what it had "learned" and then went on from there.

Do Acoustic Optimization Mar 14, 2007

Hello Marcus,

I believe you can either do an Acoustic Optimization (Tools/Accuracy Center/Run the Acoustic and Language Model Optimizer) which results in all speech data saved during past dictations being merged into your speech files ("acoustic/language model") or, alternatively, you can increase the space reserved for speech data saved between two acoustic optimizations (Tools/Options/Data/Store corrections in archive--Archive size).

Hi, Marcus

Do you have enough RAM and free space in your hard disk?

Maybe... Mar 14, 2007

I remember seeing this message at some point in DNS 8, when the function that allows you to have the computer read back your translation to you was activated. In my case, the message referred only to the saving of the complete dictation as separate audio file, not to any other speech data. Check whether you have this option activated and, if yes, see what happens when you deactivate it.

That's great. I've just tried it. I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks!

Thanks Patricia. I've just given Endre's option a go first...
