Yes, in general Dragon is funtioning in Normal Mode, allowing both dictation and basic commands.I have had occasions where clients get switched to Dictation Mode, and then commands don't work. They usually have been unable to tell me how they got switched, but when I have them verify the mode, and then switch back to Normal Mode, all is well.It would be worth checking which mode you are in. --Jim ________________________________________From: j-say-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [j-say-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] on behalf of Judy Watford [judyw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]Sent: Friday, February 17, 2012 7:24 AM To: j-say@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [j-say list] Re: Dragon not accepting commands shouldn't it function with commands out of the box. It would take a great deal of time to switch modes each time you wish to issue a command.

When in this mode, it will only transcribe what you say, not perform any commands. I don't know what the J-Say command is that allows you to check which Dragon Mode you are in, but you can switch to Normal Mode by saying "Normal Mode On" J-Say/JAWS should echo the command switch (if you have command echo on). Once in Normal Mode, you should be able to use the command functions. Give that a try and see what happens. For reference, the Dragon Recognition Modes are as follows: Normal Mode - allows both dictation and command processing Dictation Mode - only performs dictation Command Mode - only processes commands, will not type anything Numbers Mode - only wants to hear numbers, other dictation/commands will either not be processed or will be interpreted as a number (usually with bizarre results) Spell Mode - only wants to hear letters, other dictation/commands gives inaccurate results. I've found this mode to be cumbersome, since if you pause in spelling, it inserts a space wherever the pause is Hope that helps. --Jim -----Original Message----- From: j-say-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:j-say-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Ann Byrne Sent: Wednesday, February 15, 2012 8:48 PM To: j-say@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [j-say list] Dragon not accepting commands I'm new to speech input, and assume I have something set wrong somewhere. When I dictate, Dragon is happy. When I say 'move down one', Dragon types it into my document. When I say "press control n" it either ignores me or goes ting. How do I explain that I am commanding???? Thanks,
