I have to keep my computer on because I'm a quadriplegic, so at bedtime I put power saving mode to turn off the display after one minute (but "never" for sleep). It used to work fine, the display would turn off and when I wanted to wake up Dragon the screen would come back on and the microphone would work.

Now when I say "wake up" the display comes back on but the green microphone icon turns red immediately and then I have no way to turn the mic back on Since I can't move. it also no longer hears me and the display goes back off after the minute so when I make any sound after that the display stays off. So the problem is obviously happens when coming out of that power saving display mode .Anyone know what could be causing this, and if there is a way I can fix it?

Thanks for any help,

Danny

                    Welcome (See Mission Statement)

 

Leaving the Dragon microphone in the Asleep state is risky because Dragon is listening all of the time. This can result in overloading the buffer, with environmental noise, or locking Dragon. We recommend purchasing SpeechStart+ which allows you to turn the Dragon microphone on when it is in the completely off state; no kidding. You will find a 15 day trial in our signature tag.

 

Even better, you can obtain a complementary copy of KnowBrainer 2020 sending proof of your permanent disability to Support@KnowBrainer.com No kidding on that either. No stings attached

Awesome, thanks for the info. I've been using Dragon since my accident in 2005 so it's been a long time, but I'll do a little research of KnowBrainer to see if it will be helpful. I actually just googled for a Dragon forum so I don't know much about it yet. I appreciate the help.

There used to be a dozen or so Dragon speechrecognition forums but the others have been retired for various reasons. This is the only remaining English Dragon forum. If you Google for “Dragon forums” you'll wind up on a gaming forum. If you Google for “speech recognition forums” you'll find what you're looking for

Only PCByVoice's SpeechStart+ can turn the Dragon Mic on. Dragon can turn the microphone off
