    Default VOICE RECOGNITION SOFTWARE [VRS]

    I have been using Dragon Naturally Speaking 5 for a few years now with no real problems. I have installed it on new computer and all has been working fine. Till today.

    I now find that I can dictate fine into Excel, Publisher, Powerpoint and Access but not Word.

    I talk into the microphone and the mic symbol in the system tray indicates it is receiveing a signal (as you would expect) but there's no response from Word. The cursor just continues to flash on the document as if it's waiting for something to happen.

    There seems to be a glitch in the system that means the link from the VRS to Word is no longer there.

    Any suggestions as to how I might fix this would be much appreciated.

    By the way I have tried rebooting, re-installing the software and a few other things but all to no avail.

    Thanks everyone.

    Anyone mulling over this problem - don't bother. It's was my machine.

    Signed off yesterday, left it overnight (like you do), booted up this morning and all is well. The VRS has now decided to work correctly.

    Thread ended. Hopefully.
