When I use ListVar1 in I get an error "Expecting a var name"

How do you access the <dictation> or <list> information when using


Thank you for the help.

Hi Tom!

This came up a couple of days ago with no known solution, but look at the last post in the thread…

Hi Tom,

As the developer of KB I can tell you that list variables including the open ended dictation list are not native to polar engineering scripting engines and they have to be added as an extension to the WinWrap basic scripting engine or previously the sax basic scripting engine. Dragons/nuance have done this with Dragon and I have done it with KB COM but not KB .Net. Now that users are starting to use scripting more it is a feature we will add the next version, sorry is not available at the moment. Funnily enough it has not been mentioned in the past five years or so and mentioned twice recently in the last couple of weeks. As you will know .NET scripting is not available natively to Dragon and it is something I added to KB several years ago but there seems to have been little uptake on this forum at least.


Regarding the comment from Edgar to look at the last post on the thread Context.UtilityProvider is not available via WWB .net either and as above needs to be added as an extension. If you need to use list variables then I suggest you adapt whatever script you have to WWB COM as in the example I have given in the other thread.

I'm wondering why no one has mentioned how sh***y Dragon's new built-in MyCommands Editor is when trying to find errors in your script.

It does perform syntax checking before letting you save your Advanced Scriptiong command but telling you what exactly the problem is or at least on which line is too much to ask.

A "Please, correct syntax error(s) before saving a macro" is about as helpful as a treadmill for a person in a wheelchair.
