Have been working on a library of SolidWorks voice-macros for the past six months or more that perform CAD automation using the traditional user interface of menu pull-downs and keyboard shortcuts.

More recently have spent some time studying the SolidWorks API, and it occurred to me that I could eliminate quite a bit of design-intent ambiguity and save significant double-programming/documentation effort if only I could make SolidWorks API calls directly from Dragon Advanced Scripting.

Has anyone done anything similar with say Excel, or Word? There are no doubt security considerations, but I can't think of a good reason why this wouldn't be feasible?
