Dragon Naturaly Speaking

Q: Dragon Naturaly Speaking

I recently had problems with my DNS10... it wouldn't even start. It was an old version and thought it became corrupted so I decided to upgrade to a new version DNS 13 Home edition. It seamed to install properly but, when I tried to start it, I got the same
thing, a non starter. I run Windows 7 on 64 bit processor. Looking around on the web, it seams to me that this software is generating a lot of frustration and the company is not open to answering e-mails.
Thanks,
Reg

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have used DNS for years. (WinXP, and W7) I installed in Win 10. Worked passably and useful for a few months. It just up and decided to not recognize the microphone. Nuance does not have a support as I can discern. I have the microphone plugged into the front of the computer. All indications, including the little thermometer when Dragon is testing the mike indicate it is working fine. Comes back and tells me to plug into the back. The Win10 sound recording dialog seems to recognize the sound also. The Realtek mike is checked and indicates it is plugged onto the front. Devices you purchase have 4 ft. leads thus cannot be plugged into the back without totally reconfiguring my desk with the computer with its back to me. Is there a possible conflickt with Chrome? When I open Chrome with Dragon open it opens up just a black, non functional space. I don't need it to work with Chrome. Rebooting clears Chrome.
Any ideas?
Thanks

I have dragon naturally speaking software. it had been working just fine until today when i tried to use it, it will not recognize my speech in microsfot Word.i woks in wordpad and dragon pad and even on the internet, it works. i will only recognized a few commands such as "go to bottom", "close". can anyone help?
 

A:Dragon Natural speaking

It could be a few things. Perhaps your microphone is not picking up your speech with clarity, have you altered any settings or done an update with your DN speaking?

Have you updated Word recently with new installs? Has anything been changed or altered since the first instance of the day of this error?

The easy fix would be to go your restore point (in accessories, system tools, system restore). Look for a day where it is before you saw the error and see if that fixes it.

If it does not fix the issue, let me know.

I have this program on my pc, because of school. It also allows a license for one other pc,- my wifes. She has been using this program for months. Saturday she activated the program and it gave an error message about an "internal recognition error". It won't let her access her user files, to use the program you have to be able to access these files. She tried creating a new user, but it will not let her do that. I had to call Nuance several months ago to do the initial second license pc install, now it is going to cost more than I want to pay. So I thought you folks might know what to try. In the little dialogue box on the Dragon program, it says "No user files are loaded" This is the first time we have had a problem with it.

I went to the Dragon Naturally Speaking site to ask this but they insist that I log in but there is no where to register!
So I hope that there is someone on this site who knows this software.
I had to re-install my version of Dragon Naturally Speaking 8.0 Standard and it showed that there is an update - a service pack1 (E).
Since I've never installed any of the previous service packs is it ok to install this one or does it need the previous ones to work properly?
Once it is installed it doesn't un-install.

EDIT: [I initially posted this problem to W7 OS section in error and have transferred it to hopefully the proper section] I recently set up my wife's HP w7 64 bit computer. She has MS and used Dragon Naturally Speaking premium 11 on her old XP machine. Too late we discovered that we should not have transferred files from XP to new comp. until we had deleted from new HP. We had used WET to move data between computers. Cutting to the chase we tried everything to delete on HP including trying to use Registry Detective (which found over 1000 entries still in Registry under DNS and a further 1000+ under Nuance, the company name). I emailed DNS but the email address is only a retail outlet, they want to sell me the program and dumped me off onto a 3rd party help site that wants $38 to help. Reluctantly I supplied a VISA number and the "answer" was to download REVO uninstaller a FREE download that we already had installed. Used that existing program but DNS only goes so far then either locks up or provides a pop up box that says it cannot continue because suchandsuch is missing (sorry, that info was not recorded). No idea where to find that data even with search. We are in a catch22 situation. I even sent an email to the CEO at Nuance headquarters in Europe (no response at this time). I know there is a voice recognition program in W7 which my wife has not tried yet. She has only had access to the HP for just over a day. Any ideas anyone? Without DNS my wife is ve... Read more

76 readers and not one could provide an answer. Well here's the answer! Windows 7 has a free program that converts speech to actions such as open Wordpad, write an email, open photo groups etc, just like Dragon did in XP. There are just too many Dragon users who are having no joy in trying to install Dragon on their W7 computers. My wife went thru the "learning" process in about an hour including a fair amount of reading of explanations etc on screen. It has worked for her so far and so far so good. Stay tuned ...

I have Dragon Naturally Speaking and I've never been able to use it with a recorder. The recorder, Sony IC ICD-sx25 thinks it's linked and the computer recognizes the recorder, but finds nothing to download. I've got the proper software in my computer. I can use the recorder as a microphone, but can't get it to transcribe what is on the recorder. I suspect there is something wrong with the computer. I have tried the recorder on all USB ports. Yipes. I really need this.
 

A:Dragon Naturally Speaking

I looked at their Knowledge base and this is what I've found..it is not your exact recorder, but maybe the information might help?:

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 9 and higher support handheld digital recorders and other PDAs that record in "wma" and "mp3" format for deferred transcription. After a single user dictates into the recorder, the sound file can be transcribed into text when connected to the computer. The Recorder software must be installed first, and then Dragon must be configured to use a Digital Recorder source.

The Sony ICD-UX60, ICD-UX70, and ICD-UX80 recorder does not require the Sony Digital Voice Software to convert the recorded audio from the recorder. When the recorder is plugged into the computer, it is automatically detected by the Operating System as a removable storage device. The recorded sound clips are accessible by browsing to the device.
I saw that they have online support, phone and email, but the latter 2 are pay per incident....

Hello,

I have Dragon Naturally Speaking installed on my computer. It will not open. The title page may appear briefly, but then disappears.

Finally, my printer sometimes refuses to print. I can solve this problem by uninstalling and re-installing the software. But re-installing the software has no effect on the first two problems.

After spending several hours trying all of the recommended steps to install Dragon's version of C++ Runtime ver. 9 that I had seen in this and other forums, I was finally able to get past the installation failed message.

This may not be the solution that resolves your particular issue, but I was trying to install Dragon Medical version 10.1 to a clean windows 7 pc without any previous versions of Dragon installed. I kept receiving the error "The installation of visual C++ runtime version 9.0 for dragon naturally speaking has failed"

During the process of troubleshooting, I had uninstalled all other versions of C++ Runtime but could not get past the error until I went to the event logs which pointed to the installation log (C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Temp\vcruntime9.log) which had to be opened by accessing the cmd window as an admin (google "open cmd as admin windows 7").

The log file gave details and showed the file that was actually being called during the installation process for C++ Runtime which is "vcruntime.exe". In the version 10.1 DVD, the file is located in the "ISSetupPrerequisites" folder. Once I ran the vcruntime.exe as an admin by itself, I was then able to run the regular setup.exe and Dragon installed successfully.

So I have no idea what was actually causing the error, but running the C++ Runtime program as an admin before attempting the actual Dragon install solved the issue. I hope this simple so... Read more

This isn't a wireless network.

If the cable company swapped it out they are responsible for configuring it so it will work, not just plunk in the modem and leave!! What is the make and model of the Linksys and the SA? It sounds like you actually have two routers on the network, not a modem and a router.

Has anyone used Dragon Naturally Speaking and care to relate their thoughts on it. Or reccomend another voice to type program. I'm considering the purchase of one and would just like to know what the thoughts are of someone who may have given one a shot already. Thanks in advance for any input.
 

A:Naturally Speaking

I used Dragon a while ago, and it worked well. The only thing is you have to train ANY program you buy to your voice. That was a bit cumbersome for me, so I gave it up. But other than that, I think Dragon is the best option on the market.
