Dear colleagues:

Have you ever had a bad experience using DNS8 with Windows Vista?

I installed DNS8 but it does not work. In one hand it let me do the speech tests perfectly BUT it doesn't let me work.

Specifically, when I speak, words are not transformed into text in my Word file.

It suggests to buy DNS9. Is this really necessary or is it a pretext to upgrade?

Thank you in advance!

DNS9 + upgrade Sep 14, 2007

Hi Yaotl,

I use DNS9 with Vista, but had problems at first.
I had to install a patch/upgrade to make it work with Vista. I think the patch was free of charge.
I don't know if it works with DNS8, I'm afraid not.
You may want to check system requirements - even my 1-year-old machine (not a cheap one) had trouble with DNS9 and Vista.

Good luck!
