PP V12.1, as is, is unfit for regular productive use. It is worse than a beta version. Like the support to date. I elected not to upgrade but to perform a clean install of WIN 7 OS. AFter an uneventful install and verification that all was well.

no alternative is correct, just type or say the correct text and
press the Correction hot key again. Playback continues automatically from the point where you stopped.
5 Continue until all the text is correct.
Using the Correction menu
The Correction menu shows Dragons best guess of the alternatives to the words you dictated and selected. In the following example, Dragon heard the word quick as clinic.
Say Choose 2 to replace clinic with quick.
You can also say Spell That to spell a word or Cap That to capitalize it.
You choose the correct word from the Correction menu by saying Choose and the number next to your choice.
TIP: You can change the number of choices displayed for you. In the Options dialog box, click the Correction tab and increase the number in Show no more than n choices. If you want to display your choices without the Correction menu taking up too much space on the screen, select the Show only the choices option. See the online help for more information.
When the Correction menu list appears, you can also choose to:
Spell the word (for example, say Spell That q-u-i-c-k). Selecting a large amount of text and then saying Spell That can produce unpredictable results. Press the correction hot key () while the Correction menu is open will display the Spell dialog box. Listen to a recording of what you just said (say Play That Back).
Capitalize it (say Cap That, in this example, to get Clinic) Say Unselect That to cancel the selection and close (dismiss) the Correction menu Ignore the Correction list and keep dictating (in the example above, just say quick to replace the selected text)
TIP: If you prefer not to see the Correction menu every time you select text by voice, you can turn it off. In the Options dialog box, click the Correction tab to display the Correction options, then clear the check box for Select commands bring up Correction menu.
To help you quickly find the alternative you want, the recognition choices in the Correction menu appear in boldface where they differ from the word youve selected (applicable only when you select multiple word at one time).
Words that are changed in the selection appear in bold, to help you find the correct alternative quickly.
If you select any leading or trailing spaces (including paragraph marks) along with the text you want to correct, choosing one of the alternatives in the Correction menu deletes those leading and trailing spaces.

Correcting Punctuation

Note the following when correcting punctuation:
When you select a phrase (more than one word) that has punctuation, be sure to dictate that punctuation. For example, say you initially dictated, Today is Thursday I have a meeting at 11 oclock and the text was transcribed as Today
is Thursday, I have a meeting at 11 oclock. If you want to change the comma to a period, say Select Thursday comma. If the correct punctuation appears in the Correction menu, select it. Otherwise, you can dictate over the selection by, for example, saying Thursday period.
When you select punctuation, the Correction menu might list alternate punctuation (see example to the right)
If Natural Punctuation is turned on, when you select a phrase that Dragon has added punctuation to, the choices will include punctuation changes (see example here).
NOTE: When you select a word that has adjacent punctuation the Natural Punctuation feature added, the selection will extend to include that punctuation.

Selecting text by voice

Using Select-and-Say
You can revise your dictation without correcting it by selecting the text using the Select command and then saying new words to replace the selected text.

To use Select-and-Say:

1 Dictate the sentence below: US/Canada: Lets meet for lunch on Tuesday [period] Other Dialects: Lets meet for lunch on Tuesday [full stop] 2 Say Select lunch on Tuesday. The words lunch on Tuesday
should be highlighted on the screen.
3 Say dinner on Wednesday. These words should replace
lunch on Tuesday. Since Tuesday and Wednesday sound completely different, Dragon will know you are not correcting a recognition mistake but rather revising your dictated text.
You can also select punctuation marks.
4 Say: Select period (US/Canada) or Select full stop
(Other Dialects). If theres more than one period or full stop, you can say Select Again to select a different one.
5 To replace the period or full stop with an exclamation mark,

say exclamation mark.

TIP: It is often easier for Dragon to find the matching text if you select a short phrase rather than individual words. If you select some words that are already correct, just say them again along with the ones you want to change.
Selecting the same text again
If the words youre trying to select appear more than once on the screen and Dragon selects the wrong ones, just say Select Again. The program then looks for another instance of the same word or words. You can also say Select Again if Dragon selects a word that sounds like the word you want, but is not the correct one (for example, two instead of too).

Unselecting words

If the wrong text is selected, say Unselect That.
You can also unselect words by moving your insertion point (by mouse or voice) to another part of your document. For example, say Go to End of Line or click somewhere else in your document.

Right Forward Left Back

a Word or 1 Word 2.20 Words a Character or 1 Character 2.20 Characters
Copying, cutting, and pasting text
You can move text from one place to another by using the Copy That, Cut That, and Paste That commands.
To copy, cut, or paste text:
1 Select the text you want to copy or cut. 2 Say Copy That or Cut That. 3 Move the insertion point to where you want to paste the text. 4 Say Paste That.

Deleting text

Deleting the last words you dictated
You can erase the last words you dictated by saying Scratch That. When you say this command, Dragon deletes the last thing it typed into your document. This may be a full sentence, a phrase, or just one word, if thats all you said before pausing. You can say Scratch That up to 10 times to delete the last few things you said. If you repeat the command, you must pause before saying it again. You can also say, for example, Scratch That 5 Times.
Going back as you dictate
When youre dictating, sometimes you may hesitate or think of a better way to say something right after youve said it. When this happens, you can use the Resume With command to return to where you were before the mistake. Just say Resume With followed immediately by the word or words to which you want to return. Then, continue dictating. Any text after the new position of the insertion point will be replaced with your new dictation.
NOTE: When using the Resume With command, remember not to pause in the middle. Say Resume With and then immediately say the words to which you want to return. These words must be in the last three or four sentences (100 characters) you said; you cant use Resume With to return to an earlier part of your document.
To go back as you dictate:
1 Suppose you dictate this sentence: I have a deadline this
week, but we could meet for lunch um er next Wednesday.
2 To correct the sentence, return to the last correct words you
remember dictating. For example, say Resume With meet for lunch. (Remember not to pause in the middle.)
3 Then, dictate the rest of the sentence. For example, say next

Wednesday at noon.

Deleting specific words
You can delete text by selecting it and saying Delete That.

To delete text:

1 Select the text you want to delete. 2 Say Delete That.
You can also say Scratch That to do the same thing.
Deleting the next or previous paragraph or line
You can delete the next or previous paragraph by saying Delete Next Paragraph or Delete Previous Paragraph. You can delete the next or previous line by saying Delete Next Line or Delete Previous Line. You can also delete a number of paragraphs or lines (up to 20). For example, you can say Delete Previous 5 Paragraphs. See the complete list below:


Deleting the next or previous word or character

You can delete the next or previous word by saying Delete Next Word or Delete Previous Word. You can delete the next or previous character by saying Delete Next Character or Delete Previous Character.
You can also delete a number of words or characters (up to 20). For example, you can say Delete Previous 5 Words. See the complete list below:
Next Forward Previous Back Last
Word 2.20 Words Character 2.20 Characters 2.20 Characters
NOTE: Another way to delete the previous character is by saying Backspace. This is equivalent to pressing the BACKSPACE key. You can press it multiple times (up to 20) by saying, for example, Backspace 5.

Spelling as you dictate

With the Spell command in Dragon, you can easily spell a word or phrase you want to dictate into your document. This can be useful if you are dictating a word that is not likely to be in the Dragon vocabulary, such as a proprietary term, a proper name, or a non-English word. Say, for example, Spell b-u-o-n space g-i-o-r-n-o. The word you spelled appears right in your document. You must say Cap if the word contains a capital letter. For example, say Spell Cap R-u-m-p-e-l-s-t-i-l-s-k-i-n to type Rumpelstilskin.
If you say Spell by itself, without any letters after it, the Spell dialog box opens. You can then speak the letters and Dragon will type them or you can correct any errors in the word you spelled. When spelling, you can say numbers and special characters as well as letters. For example, to dictate an automobile license plate number, you could say Spell y-h-m-6-0-9. Dragon would type yhm609. Say Spell Cap-m-ac-m-i-l-l-a-n-trademark to get MacMillan in your document. Spelling a word adds that word to the active vocabulary. Words that contain numbers are not added to the vocabulary.
TIP: To dictate unusual text such as automobile license plate numbers or product codes, you can also switch to Spell mode by saying Switch To Spell Mode, and then dictate letters.
You can make the Spell dialog box appear whenever you use the Spell command by setting the Spell commands bring up the Spell dialog box option on the Correction tab in the Options dialog box. See the online help for more information. You can also access the Spell dialog box when using the Select or Correct commands. For a list of how to spell special characters, see the Spelling topic in the online Help.

Correcting your own dictation
If you save your dictation, you can open your file later and play back and correct the text as if you had just dictated it.
Correcting someone elses dictation
You can play back someone elses dictation and correct the text to match the dictation. You can do this in two ways: Correct the dictation using your own user files. Correct the dictation using the document authors user files.
Correcting with your own user files
You should use this correction technique if you regularly correct another persons text by voice and it is not important to maximize the authors recognition accuracy. When you use your own user files to correct someone elses text, you can correct the dictation just as you would correct your own dictation, using any combination of voice commands and keyboard typing. Even though you are correcting someone elses dictation, your work wont reduce recognition accuracy for either you or the person who dictated the text. But your corrections to the other persons dictation wont improve his or her recognition either.
Correcting with the document authors user files
You should use this correction technique if you do not need to correct by voice and it is important to maximize the authors recognition accuracy.
TIP: This technique works if all work is done on a single computer. Consult your Dragon reseller about ways to dictate on one computer and correct on another.
If you correct dictation using the authors user files, you must not correct by voice, or you may reduce that persons recognition accuracy. You can, however, improve the authors recognition accuracy if you make corrections by using the keyboard and mouse with the Correction menu, as in the following procedure.
To correct using someone elses user files:
1 Make sure you are not wearing the microphone headset, or
that the microphone is not turned on or plugged in. This action ensures that you dont accidentally reduce the accuracy of someone elses user files by using your voice.
2 Be sure the DragonPad Extras toolbar is displayed so you can
see the playback command buttons.
3 Open the user files of the person whose text you will correct. 4 In DragonPad, open the document to correct. 5 Use the buttons on the Extras toolbar to play back dictation. 6 Select the text you want to correct by mouse or keyboard. 7 Press the correction hot key (normally the minus [] key on

Dictating next word in all lowercase letters
When youre dictating, you can enter a word in all lowercase letters by saying No Caps and then the word. For example, say No Caps Jennifer to get jennifer. (Dragon normally capitalizes this and other proper names.)
Dictating consecutive words in all lowercase letters
When you want to dictate consecutive words in lowercase letters (for example, names of computer files or e-mail addresses), you can turn the no capitals feature on and then turn it off when you are finished. This is usually easier than saying No Caps before each word.
To dictate consecutive words in all lowercase letters:
1 Say No Caps On to turn no capitals on. 2 Dictate the words you want to appear in all lowercase. 3 Say No Caps Off to turn no capitals off.
Capitalizing (or uncapitalizing) text already in your document
You can change the capitalization of text already in your document by selecting it and then saying Capitalize That, Cap That, or All Caps That, or Uncapitalize That, Uncap That, or No Caps That.
To capitalize or uncapitalize text:
1 Select the text you want to change. 2 Say Capitalize That, Cap That, or All Caps That,
or Uncapitalize That, Uncap That, or No Caps That.

Formatting text

You can use voice commands to specify any combination of font name, size, and style, in that order. These commands change text you dictate from then on or text you have selected. To set a new style for text you are about to dictate, use the Set Font and Set Size commands. To change the style of text you have already selected, use the Format That command.
Changing the font as you dictate
While dictating, you can change the font face, size, and style by saying Set Font followed by the font attributes you want. For example, you can say Set Font Times or Set Font Arial 12 Bold. When you continue dictating, the new text appears with the font attributes you set.

Changing font face

Set Font
Arial Courier Courier New Garamond
Helvetica Palatino Times Times New Roman

Changing font size

Say Set Size and then a size from 4 to 100 points. For example, say Set Size 18. Then, continue dictating.

Changing font style

Bold Italics Bold Italics Underline Strikeout Plain or Plain Text or Normal or Regular
Say Set Font and then the attributes you want (listed in the previous sections). You can specify any combination of font face, size, and style, but you must specify these attributes in that order (font face, then size, then style). See the list of examples below:
Set Font Arial Set Font Arial 12 or Set Font Arial 12 Point Set Size 12 Bold Set Font Arial Bold Set Font Bold

NOTE: If youre changing only the font size, use the Set Size commands, not the Set Font command.

Changing the font later

You can go back and change the font face, size, or style of text by selecting it and then using the Format That commands. Format That works on selected text with the same combinations of font face, size, and style as the Set Font commands (see the tables in the previous section.)

To change the font:

1 Select the text you want to change. 2 Say Format That and then the font attributes you want to
apply as described in the previous section. For example, say Format that Arial 18.
Bold, italics, and underlining
You can apply formatting to text in your document by selecting it and then saying Bold That, Italicize That, or Underline That. You can also say Strikeout That.
To add bold, italics, and underlining:
1 Select the text you want to change. 2 Say Bold That, Italicize That, Underline That, or

Strikeout That.

To remove formatting:
1 Select the text you want to change. 2 Say Restore That to remove formatting.

Aligning text

You can change how text is aligned by placing your insertion point in the text and saying Center That, Left Align That, or Right Align That.

To align text:

1 Move the insertion point to the text you want to align.
2 Say Center That, Left Align That, or Right Align
That. You can also use the following commands on selected text: Format That Centered, Format That Left Aligned, and Format That Right Aligned.

Bulleted text

To add bullets to text, place your insertion point in the text and say Format that Bullet Style. To remove bullets, say Format that Bullet Style again.
Dictating Numbers, Punctuation, and Special Characters
his chapter describes how to dictate numbers, punctuation, Web addresses, and a few other special items. For complete information on this topic, see the online help.
NOTE: If Dragon is not formatting a word as you would like, you can change the formatting properties of the word by using the Word Properties dialog box. See the online help for more information.

Dictating numbers

In most cases you can dictate numbers, including postal codes, as you normally say them. Dragon will display either a numeral (3) or the word (three), based on the context. To force recognition of digits as numerals instead of text without using the Numbers Mode, say Numeral before you say the digit, for example, say Numeral Three to get 3. When dictating numbers:

You can use or omit the word and as part of a number. For example, say one hundred fifty instead of one hundred and fifty to get the number 150. You can use oh and zero interchangeably to get 0. If you want a comma in a four-digit number, you must speak it explicitly. Numbers with five or more digits automatically include commas, with the exception of US ZIP codes. For a decimal point, say point.
TIP: If you want to dictate only numbers, you can switch to Numbers Mode. See Switching recognition modes on page 123 for more information.


5,423 12,537 142,015 35.23 0.03
one numeral one five numeral five seventeen twenty three one hundred seventy nine one seventy nine five thousand four hundred and twenty three five [comma] four twenty three twelve thousand five hundred and thirty seven one hundred and forty two thousand and fifteen thirty five [point] two three All Dialects: zero [point] zero three Outside US/Canada: nought [point] nought three forty three [point] twenty eight [percent sign] oh two four six zero two and three fourths eleven over thirty two ninety nine dollars and fifty cents 45 Euros and thirty-five cents pound sterling sign one hundred and twenty point thirty five [All Dialects]
43.28% 3/4 11/32 $99.50 45.35 120.35
02460-1458 oh two four six zero [hyphen] one four five eight
NOTE: If you are having problems dictating numbers, currency, times, or dates, make sure that your Regional Settings match the language (dialect) you selected when you created your user.

Using Numbers mode

Any time you need to dictate a series of numbers and do not want Dragon to recognize them as words, you can turn on Numbers Mode. This could be useful, for example, if you are dictating in a spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel. To turn on Numbers Mode, say Start Numbers Mode or Numbers Mode On. To turn off Numbers Mode, say, Stop Numbers Mode or Numbers Mode Off or Switch to Normal Mode. For more information on Numbers Mode and more ways to turn Numbers Mode on and off, see the section Switching recognition modes on page 123.
You can dictate most dates the way you would normally say them. Say oh or zero to enter 0. In dialects other than US/ Canada, you can also say nought.
