Dear all 

 

I used to be able to rapidly dictate and then say 'period line' and the end of dictation and get the correct command output i.e a full stop followed by a new line .

Lately, when I say period line it outputes ". Line"

 

I would like to continue saying period line and get the full stop followed by new line because this is how I have always dictated. 

 

I have tried making various commands for this including advanced command , text graphics or step by step .While sometimes the commands outputs correctly , after a few dictations it reverts to new line.

 

An example of a command I tried is : 

 

Sub Main

SendKeys "^{Down}{Left 2}{End}"

Wait 0.3

SendKeys "."

Wait 0.1

SendKeys "+{Enter}"

Wait 1

End Sub

 

(the behaviour is not consistent) 

 

 

Is anyone able to help me with a functional command to say 'period line' and get a full stop followed by a new line

If you only want a "." and a new line then this simple DVC script should suffice:

 

SendKeys "."

SendSystemKeys "{Enter}"

 

I tried it extensively on my system and it always produces the same reliable result.

Thank you . I have tried the above script and still get the same issues . It works If I pause at the end of the line which I believe should be the way it works but I used to be able rapidly dictate new line after new line without issues .I have tried reducing the pause before command time without success

Sorry, yes I see what you mean.

 

"period" and "new line" are continuous voice commands which can seamlessly be put in between your dictation and they always work no matter how fast you speak.

 

However, as soon as you try to script them in any way you most probably lose that ability. I am curious though about your initial command working previously.

Diligence nailed it. Even if you create the perfect command, it will slow you down and Dragon already has a faster continuous version of this command. No need to create something inferior for existing technology.

 

Try substituting period new line for period line which we don't believe is a Dragon command. Perhaps you are thinking of period paragraph which is a Dragon command. These types of commands will also let you add dictation before or after without pausing. Example: Try saying "period new line good" or "that's it period new line this is next"

Thank you both . Period new line works .I believe what might have happened with my previous profile is that due to my accent it ended up picking my period line as "period new line". Thank you once again

Just as a follow up this command seems to work for my purposes 

 

'#Language "WWB-COM"

 

Option Explicit

 

Sub Main

Dim Dgnengine As New DgnEngineControl

Dgnengine.Register

Dgnengine.RecognitionMimic(".")

Dgnengine.RecognitionMimic("press Enter")

End Sub

What is so difficult about just saying "period new line", I wonder. As opposed to making this a command, you don't even have to pause before, in between, and after when using what you already have via the vocabulary at no additional cost or effort.
