David-I am of the opinion that you probably have a compatibility issue... what specific version of J-Say Pro, Jaws for Windows, and Dragon NaturallySpeaking are being used? -ed. -----Original Message----- From: j-say-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:j-say-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of David Lepofsky Sent: Thursday, September 25, 2008 8:43 AM To: j-say@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [j-say list] Major JSay 6 problems Belatedly just installed JSay 6. various standard JSay commands are not working. If i just dictate, it will actually transcribe my dictations. however, commands like "listen to me" and "check microphone" get no response at all. if i say "check echo", it response with "unknown script called to what echo". i repeated the command several times very clearly. it had worked in JSay 5 with no problem. Same response when i say echo on command echo on. I cannot get it to verbally echo my dictation. also, all the settings under tools/options are correct. yet the hotkey for turning on and off the microphone are not working or set at all, even though JSay says everything is set right. i can only turn on and off the mike by doing control shift f-12 and then using the turn microphone on and off command from the keyboard. this is bizarre. any suggestions?
