    Weirdness with Microphone Delays and Dragon


    Not sure where to post this, and also not sure if I'll ever figure this out, but thought I'd post here for some expert help...

    I use Dragon Medical Practice Edition for dictating. I use a Philips SpeechMike for dictations.

    When I'm running DMPE and click the record button on my microphone, there is a 1-3 second delay before the light comes on and I can start dictating. What's really weird is if I'm running Pandora, the light comes on instantly and allows me to start recording immediately. Also, if I start recording, stop, then start again within 30 seconds of stopping, everyone works instantly.

    What could Pandora be doing that would cause this? Is there some sort of setting in Windows that causes microphones to time out and Pandora is keeping that from coming into play with constantly streaming audio? I have USB power management turned off, so the USB device isn't being put to sleep.

    :)

    Microphone connection with Dragon 13 and Windows 10

    Hi Michael,

    One of the possible cause to this issue is compatibility conflict. Some user reports that the latest version of Dragon 13 doesn't require Compatibility mode in order to run correctly. We suggest turning off Compatibility mode by following the steps below:

    • Locate Dragon 13 shortcut and right click it.
    • Select Properties from the list.
    • Click on Compatibility tab and locate Run this program in compatibility mode for and uncheck it.
    • Click OK to save the changes and try running the application again.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.

  3. Microphone connection with Dragon 13 and Windows 10

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks for your suggestions, but no joy. The Compatibility facility was already unchecked.

    Dragon 13 is fully installed on Windows 10, am able to do a normal microphone test, and even saw speech to text appear in a Dragon test window. But no sound seems to get through to Dragon when I try to use it, thus no text appears in Word, email, or anything
    else. I suspect my Realtek sound card may be the culprit, since I came across warnings somewhere. Maddening.
