    Dictation not working.


    When dictating into a document, the dictation box pops up. I do not want to use the dictation box. When I go back to my document, it says in the dragonbar that I can dictate and use voice commands, but then my voice command is not transcribed into the document where I want it.

    :)

  2. Dictation - Random Capitilization

    Hi TFLJ,

    It's possible that Dictation listens and analyzes your words in phrases or context clues. It is important to state the word clearly.

    By the way, since when did this behavior start? Have you made any changes or installed any updates on your computer before this issue?

    In order for us to sort this out, I suggest setting the Dictation to make all the letters in a word lowercase. Once this is enabled, try dictating again and see if it still randomly capitalizes letters or words.

    If the issue persists, then it is best that you train again your PC to recognize your speech. Follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Click Ease of Access > Speech Recognition.
    • Under Configure your Speech Recognition experience, click the link Train your computer to better understand you option.
    • Click Next and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Please let me know the result.

    Regards.

  3. New FF - passwords


    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM
