Configure Cortana instead of Dragon Assistant - X1 Carbon

Question: Configure Cortana instead of Dragon Assistant - X1 Carbon

Hi All, I have an X1 Carbon Gen2 which came with Dragon Assistant originally. But I lost it once upgraded to Windows 10. The response I got from Nuance when I called them was that Dragon Assistant is designed for Windows 8 and is not supported by Windows 10. So I was just wondering if there is a way to configure Cortana instead of Dragon Assistant to the same button on the adaptive keyboard. Have anyone tried this ? Please let me know.

Preferred Solution: Configure Cortana instead of Dragon Assistant - X1 Carbon

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, We recently purchased multiple X1 Carbons and reimaged them. Now we cannot use Dragon Assistant at all. I haven't been able to find any information online about this and when I called Lenovo support, the call agent never heard of Dragon, and his supervisor couldn't provide any help either. Please help! Thanks, Bob

Answer:X1 Carbon Dragon Assistant

Bob,
when you say you reimaged the systems, did you delete the preload and load oem sw version? is this a custom image for your organization? are you running windows 7 or 8 or 8.1? Dragon assistant is part of the Lenovo preload for win 8.1.
Note that Dragon Assistant has separate installers for each language/region that it supports.?
please message me if you are looking to re deploy Dragon.
 
ADMIN EDIT - If dragon is missing from your system after a reload, please contact support in your country. They can help install or provide you the links for download.  These cannot be provided in public due to the licensing terms.

Not a huge problem, but I still want to fix it...So I tried Dragon Assistant out for the first time yesterday, and I updated it from 1.5 to 3 since it told me to, and I was like why not...It was still working fine after the update, but after updating it, I started to tinker with my PC (Lenovo Flex 14) to try to fix the Wifi and Bluetooth issues that I had. After installing a new driver for Intel Bluetooth (3.1.1309 to 3.1.1311), Bluetooth stopped working completely...So I tried a system restore to fix my bluetooth driver (I don't know why I did that...big mistake) and I restored it to the time right before I updated Dragon to version 3.After doing that, I noticed that Dragon stopped working...not even the uninstaller (missing unins000.msg). So since my bluetooth didn't get fixed after my system restore...I decided to undo the restore.So, yeah a long story, but now I need help. Now when I try to open Dragon, it says there was an error reading the language pack and that I need to reinstall it, but I don't know how...Can anyone help me?

Answer:I think I broke my Dragon Assistant...

Here's a repost from what I put in another thread: For anyone that had trouble updating the Dragon Assistant, or if you lost the program outright with the upgrade to Windows 8.1, here is the link to the latest version (1.1.19) of the Dragon Assistant Core: http://dragonassistantcontent.nuance.com/release-1.1.1/1.1.19/Dragon%20Assistant%20Core%201.1.19.exe Download the latest version (1.5.17) of the program application here: http://dragonassistantcontent.nuance.com/release-1.1.1/1.5.17/Dragon%20Assistant%20Application%20Upd... In order for the update to install, you have to delete any prior versions of the application.  If none of this works and you want to be adventurous, you can download a complete program install with the following 762MB file (note: it "may" be vendor specific to Dell, but the worst that can happen is it won't install): http://dragonassistantcontent.nuance.com/installer-dell/da_1.5.0_en-US_Dell.exe Hope it helps!

Hello all,So recently I saw a number of threads saying that I should call lenovo support to get Dragon Assist back after accidentally deleting it some time ago.  I duly called the support number and was told that there is no link to download it, and that instead I need to use think vantage to get it back (is this different from solution center), but I could just as easily end up wiping my hard drive.  I was told that I needed to pay to get a software warranty (I still have the hardware one) if I wanted help doing this, as I only have a warranty on hardware. Does anyone know how to recover Dragon Assistant, as calling support was ridiculously unhelpful.  I shouldn't have to pay for something I, in effect, already bought, and have access to.  I'm just not sure how to install it Thanks,Ben

I have been trying to solve this issue for the last few hours. I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad y510p (Windows 8.1). Normally Dragon Assistant comes preinstalled on this laptop. It is even advertised by several retailers such as Best Buy, Amazon, and Costco (same sku). However, I can not find this software anywhere on my laptop. After talking to three different Lenovo support technicians, we came to the conclusion that the software was lost with the windows 8.1 update. They still did not know of any way to obtain Dragon Assist, as it is not sold by Nuance and is only a preinstalled software. Does anyone know who I can get in touch with to obtain Dragon Assistant? I plan to call Nuance on Monday but I believe they will just redirect me to Lenovo. Any help would be appreciated, thank you. - Josh

I have the exact same problem.  It seems that the upgrade uninstalls the original software and then you are left with nothing.  It's been 6 days since your original post OP, have you received a solution? Seems to be a similar problem with the Intel Experience Center Update.  The update uninstalls the software but it can't reinstall because the software is preconfigured for the machine. From the Update site   "The application in Windows Store* is an update/upgrade only for those computers where Intel® EC was installed by the manufacturer."

Hi all; I have just received a Lenovo X1 Carbon 2nd Gen and it came wiped with Windows 8.1 installed. I installed all of the drivers available on the internet and the dependencies package etc. but there are no links to reinstall Dragon Assistant or the camera gestures software, both of which I would rather like. My system is in warranty until 2017 so I ought to be able to get them from Lenovo but attempts to ask call centre employees have proven more fruitless than a McDonald's banana milkshake. Are there any links you guys have found, or if not I don't suppose any of you can help me find a Lenovo employee who can help?Otherwise, I love the X1 Carbon :-)All the best, David

Hi all, I've been playing with my new Yoga 2 for a week now. I like how light, fast and quiet the machine is. I do however feel the machine is kind of buggy and wanted to see if anyone else was having similar issues. Windows 8.1 makes me feel like an idiot but I'm slowly learning how to customize everything to my liking. On to the issues: 1. I tried to download the Dragon Assistant installer and the installation didn't work properly. Now I can't find the installer anywhere on my computer to relaunch it. I am able to find it when I'm in control panel/uninstall program but I only have the option to uninstall from the machine, not repair it. Where the heck is the dang installer?!? 2. I wasn't able to download iTunes, after a few unsuccessful tries I went to an online forum and someone having the same issues posted an alternative link for the download and that seemed to have done the trick. 3. I have duplicate apps listed under my start pin, like the Lenovo phone compainon is listed under two different sections and it's driving me NUTS! 4. My screen seems to flicker everyonce in awhile, is this common with other Yoga 2 users? I guess I'm trying to find out if others have had the same issues as I have, if there are solutions to the issues and if I should ultimately return the machine because it's faulty and try to get another one. Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro/i7/8GB/512SSD Dragon Assistant and other (software) issues

 
Welcome to the forum!
 
Honestly, all of these seem like software issues.
 
The first two issues seem like application issues that have nothing to do with the system.
The third issue could be a glitch in the preload - let's see if others note it.  Even so, it seems correctable.
 
Regarding the last issue...
 
We have an update coming for power managment in the next week - I don't know that your screen flicker is an issue specifically being addressed, but it may be caused by changes in power state and perhaps updating the driver and energy manager app will help.
 
Best regard,

I'm having the same problem on my Yoga 2 13 computer. Nuance says it's an installed program by Lenovo and only they can solve what they claim is a widespread problem.

Also the screen flickers often.  I want a stable relieable machine that works with little effort.  Are these IdeaPad Yoga machines tried and true or is this a company with big hype and good gimick (multimode)  but with little real substance.  Did I buy the wrong product?

Answer:How to configure 2 external monitors with X1 Carbon

I see this is an old post, but I figured I'd respond in case someone else is having the same problem. There is a setting in the BIOS where you can have the X1 power on automatically when you plug it into the dock. I believe the setting is called something to the affect of "Power On When Connected to A/C." This solves the problem you and describing and I have been using with successfully with a dual monitor set up.

I have a toshiba laptop upgraded to windows 10. Suddenly about a week ago my start menu, Cortana, & several other windows apps (calculator, etc) stopped opening at all. I did a system restore to about a week before. System restore took an unusually extremely long time but seemed to work.
NOW Cortana responds to Hey Cortana, but then the little corner cortana box just sits there, & cortana never speaks.
My start menu opens normal but my xbox app (which i use quite a lot) acts like its going to open, but before I see anything other than the green background it closes (no notification or anything). It does the same thing if i click one of my notifications in the menu that comes from the icon on my taskbar.
Same happens with Edge (from any place including: startmenu, desktop, & taskbar).
Calculator, Word, etc all seem to work fine.
I thought I'd try restoring to previous time again however though i had 3 different restore point options when i restored the 1st time (&i had chosen the most recent), it shows no previous restore points & shows no space being used for restore storage!
Ive found some similar problems when i tried searching for solutions, however they all had AVAST installed, which i do not.
Could anybody help me with a good solution? Thank you very much for your time & assistance.

Rushing as usual, when setting up Cortana I was not paying attention and when it asked what i want Cortana to call me, I thought it was asking if i wanted to rename Cortana... So i figured Id keep it Cortana..
Now, it calls me Cortana
Not a Huge Biggie but id like to put my name in there... Can I fix it?

Answer:In Windows ten, I thought Cortana was asking me what I wanted to call her.. so I typed in Cortana. How can I get it to say my name?

You can probably tell her something along the lines of "Hey Cortana, call me Gwen Stacey."
If that doesn't work, you can say, "Change my name" to Cortana and then she will give you instructions on how to change what she calls you. Something along the lines of the following:
"In the notebook select About Me. Then select Change My Name."
(The notebook is the third box on the sidebar, the one under the button that looks like a house.)
Happy travels!

The biggest thing that I miss about not having a dedicated IFTTT app for Windows Phone is that I can't use the geofencing capabilities of IFTTT to, for example, turn my alarm on/off automatically as I leave/get home or turn the thermostat on/off in the same way. I know Cortana has geofencing since I often use it to remind me to buy something when I get to certain stores. I have Cortana Triggers which allows me to turn the alarm off by telling Cortana to do so, but is there a way to combine everything into one automatic process? Have Cortana's geofencing kick in as I leave the house which then tells Cortana Triggers to set the alarm?

First, I'd like to point out that I found and read this thread that, in the last post, tells me how to disable Cortana. https://techguy.org/1185771

But for me, that is not enough. I want her file gone completely. I opened the file location and moved Cortana's file onto my desktop. I've yet to delete it because I don't know what harm could or could not happen.

That being said, let me tell you about my laptop, in case that makes any difference.
My laptop is a SonicMaster by Asus, E403S Series (the biggest piece of sh*t that I will NEVER buy again. SO MANY PROBLEMS.)

If any more laptop info is needed, let me know. While I'm considered the tech guru of my house, all of this is way beyond my head.

Hi, I bought my Carbon Touch looking forward to activating with Verizon and replacing my current 3g ipad.  After hours trying to figure out how to enable broadband, I find out that apparently the "touch" models don't offer it.  Can someone at Lenovo explain how they can have promotional materials like the page at http://www.lenovo.com/products/us/laptop/thinkpad/x-series/x1-carbon-touch/ that says "ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch" and "Embedded 3G Connectivity" while not offering it at all? Then, I thought I'd return the Touch and get the regular Carbon, but I'm seeing now that, despite all of the reviews and promo materials that say otherwise, it doesn't support Verizon either.  How can this be true?  Just about every review that I read about these laptops is flat wrong on these topics.  What's the scoop? I tried calling technical support a couple of times and they were of no help.   

Answer:X1 Carbon Touch WWAN (Carbon does not support Verizon and Carbon Touch has no 3G at all)

jprny,
 
Welcome to the Support Forums! I can definitely understand your confusion and I know you must be frustrated. I can clarify that the WWAN is optional in the X1 Carbon, from the same link you provided you can open the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Ultrabook Specs it states there is Optional 3G WWAN.
 
Here is the the X1 Carbon Personal Systems Reference (You will find the X1 Carbon Touch on the very bottom)
This shows the different models of the X1 Carbon and what specifications are included. Unfortunately, I only see AT&T as the 3G provider on the standard models. From the Parts List it looks like there are other options to choose from that would make it a configured to order machine. You may want to contact Verizon to see if any of the WWAN cards work with their network.
 
I would recommend contacting the after sales team:
For Post-Sales Inquiries
Please call 1-866-42-THINK (1-866-428-4465) Monday - Friday 9am - 7pm EST
 
Example: (I dont know what your exact machine type is)

 
I really do understand your frustration, I hope you found this helpful.

(Listen Up Microsoft heads.) I can't use Cortana. I cannot actually bring myself to open Cortana.

It's sad really because I have been a PC Artificial Intelligence Freak since Virtual Personalities came out with Sylvie (Verbots) and Zabaware came out with Ultra Hal in the early 2000's. Over the past 15 years personal PC AI hasn't changed/grown much until Siri came along. Unfortunately, I'm not into Apple products. Microsoft came with a promise of a Siri killer. A PC AI that would work better than Siri. I waited patiently until Windows 10 release. I made sure had new working headphones and microphone. I made sure Speech Recognition was working and trained so I could make the most use of Cortana. I was imaging Cortana having all the features of Dragon Speech Recognition coupled with Siri's search abilities and personality. I wanted Cortana to be my Personal PC assistant. I was looking forward to this awesome ride.

Then I started reading about all Windows 10 ways Microsoft could download my personal data for their own use - which in Windows 10 is ON by default if you blindly use the Express settings (like the conniving Microsoft wants you to do - notice the word Con in Conniving) as well as a host of other places to disable like unwanted behavior.

Someone mentioned you could actually turn all this off with two registry hacks but my searching turned up at least 5 other places in windows that wanted to steal your data (through various settings all over the system.) I think ... Read more

I am based in the UK and updated a few months back using the Developers Preview to get 8.1. I changed my region to the US to use Cortana. The new update yesterday enabled me to get my local version and she works the same but she sounds English, which is nice, and, I think, she understands me better but she was very good before. The strange thing is she doesn't respond to Cortana anymore. If I ask her what she is called she directs me to a web page... boo. But this does open up the possibility that I could call her something else? Personally I would call her Navi (Zelda, Ovarian of time anyone?) That would be fantastic.
Does this sound about right to everyone else UK experience?

I don't have a microphone on my home desktop. I will never use Cortana. Even though I disabled Cortana it is still using 26 MB of memory. Can I uninstall it? Alternatively is there a way to stop Cotana from using memory?

Answer:I disabled Cortana, but it still uses 26 MB of RAM. Can I uninstall Cortana?

I have looked into that a week or so ago when I noticed how much of a memory hog it was even when disabled. It is intergraded into the windows search so unless Microsoft comes up with something safe we can do to stop it from loading we are stuck with it. There have been posts online about renaming the folder and I did try that and it worked (also disabled the search), but changed it back not knowing just how much intergraded it is and what problems could arise later on using my system. I could live without the search option to stop it from loading at all, but I don't know how deep it goes into the OS to chance it.

I used the 1st gen X1 Carbon for a while and found out that it's very robust and the touch feeling is very good. I guessed that all sides (A+B+C+D) of it are made by carbon fiber. Correct me if I'm wrong. But when I use my X1 Yoga 1st gen, which has only carbon fiber on A side (the cover behind screen) and uses "Super Magnesium" on C+D sides (the cover around keyboard and behind the keyboard), this design bring several problems: 1. " Super Magnesium" is still metal, if you crash it by accident, you may leave a scrath on it permanently, this happens more on edges;2. what's more, the paint at the edge of " Super Magnesium" will be rubbed away with time goes on, and you will see the white metal not the ThinkPad black;3. metal will suffer from deformation by force;4. the D side of my X1 yoga feels loose when you hold it with one hand, which make you feel cheap of this $1500 machine. Thus I hope the next gen of X1 Yoga or X1 Carbon can provide a pure carbon fiber version, for better build quality and user experience. How do you guys think about it?

I haven't spent much time on a newer MBP, but it's very equivalent to a MBP a few generations back, but is brighter. It's for sure usable, and while IPS would be prefered, I can easily live with it daily.

Answer:remove "get cortana for my phone" message from cortana action window

See This Thread. It seems that there is no easy way to get rid of this spam. I was recently forced to perform a full recovery of my system, to OOTB conditions (due to other issues), and that did get rid of the annoying Cortana message. Of course, I have a backup HD, so I was able to reinstall all of my settings, apps and programs without too much swearing.
This is the only method I've found that works, and I did extensive searches for a solution when the problem first arose.

A couple weeks ago, we got an early look at Cortana in Windows 10 and thanks to the new leak of Windows 10 build 9901, we have a lot more to share about the new feature.
As you can see from the images in this post, in build 9901, Cortana is much more refined in her appearance and she appears to be more responsive on our install. More so, we can also dig into the settings of the feature and gain a better understanding of where the feature is headed.

Folks - I have two X1 Carbons sitting in front of me, both running Windows 8.1, trying to connect to my Samsung TV.The X1 Carbon (2014) has display corruption on WiDi, while the X1 Carbon (original) works fine. On the 2014 X1 Carbon, you get display corruption, and choppy squeaky audio every few seconds. With the original everything is smooth as silk. Any thoughts? I've already run Lenovo System Update on X1 Carbon (2014) as well as Windows Update, so everything is up to date. Don't know what else to try? Clearly, it's not the TV, nor the router, nor interference - since one machine works and the other doesn't... Thanks!

Does anyone know whether the displays of either the X1 Carbon or X1 Carbon Touch currently available on the Lenovo website are IPS, and if not, what panel type they are? The sales reps have told me conflicting things. On the product configuration screen, the display types are listed as 14.0" Premium HD+ (1600x900) LED Backlit Display, 720p HD Camera, No WWAN and 14.0" MultiTouch Premium HD+ (1600x900) LED Backlit Display, 720p HD Camera. No WWAN respectively. It's my understanding that in the past, the phrase "Premium HD+" has meant IPS. Also, if someone from Lenovo is reading this, could you please ask somebody in engineering who actually knows?

Answer:X1 Carbon / Carbon Touch Panel Currently IPS?

No, it is an outdated low resolution TN panel again with better than Lenovo usual almost zero contrast (below 150:1). Quote from Lenovo shop:Multitouch Premium ? Optimized for Windows 8, 10-finger touch on select ThinkPad models allows for fluid tablet-like interaction. Intuitive navigation enables browsing, scrolling, using apps, even gaming, with a simple swipe of the touchscreen. A capacitive touch panel trigger actions immediately, and the cursors follow your fingers around the screen without any perceptible lag or delays. Review http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Lenovo-ThinkPad-X1-Carbon-Touch-Ultrabook.89901.0.htmlLP140WD2 TLE2, TN LED, Contrast: 885:1

Answer:Dragon which ver

The latest version is needed, as early versions were less than useable.

Even with the latest version, the best quality microphone, a fast CPU, a high quality sound card and many (many) hours of "training" you should not expect any miracles.

This technology is not yet mature. Significant manual input is still needed (this is why typists are not yet an endangered species).

The version also depends on what you are studying - medical language may need a different solution to accountancy as an example.

Question: sy-k7v dragon plus

i am running a sy-k7v dragon plus i plan to put a 1.1 amd athlon tbird processor with fsb 200 my mb can take both 266 and 200 fsb cpus. i plan to upgrade to maximum cpu i put in my machine
so what i am looking for is the fastest ram the 200 fsb can take with this motherboard (i.e. pc 1600, pc 2100,and pc 2700)
 

Answer:sy-k7v dragon plus

Soyo has made provisions for bus speeds other than the standard 100 MHz (200 MHz DDR) and 133 MHz (266 MHz DDR)

The SY-K7V DRAGON Plus! features Front Side Bus speed adjustments in 1 MHz increments all the way from 100 MHz (200 MHz DDR) to 233 MHz (466 MHz DDR!).

Core voltage adjustment is available from the same BIOS menu that users can use to overclock with. Voltage adjustments are available in 0.025v increments. You may have to boost it a little to reach the higher FSB.

Please note that Overclocking is inherently risky as it could damage your CPU and invalidate its warranty. This should only be attempted if you know what you are doing and fully accept the associated risks.

DDR2100 is the fastest it needs at the normal FSB, but you can get the FSB to around 150 with good components which would mean you would need DDR2700. That's about as high as I'd go based of info from others on problems others have had going over 150FSB. Plus, I don't ever try to push a board to the max, there's just to much risk.

northumbria61,
I saw - amd almost commented upon - your reply in Furkin's query!
I, too, have still got a Dragon 32, won a competition and got a cuboid tape machine that held a lot more than the drives. I went on to buy a Dragon 64 and bought an external 5.25" floppy drive machine, but have now sold these last two, but still have the '32'.
But what I was wondering about is if you had tried selling yours lately, and if you had any success? I tried a few years ago now and didn't get anywhere!
I don't know what you thought of the '32' but it got me interested in programming, and it certainly taught you that your programmes had to have as much detail as you could get in, within the confines of what, 25.5 KB! It certainly showed me that multi-statment lines were necessary, but it was always fun. I am just sorry that writing programmes these days is so much more complicated.

Hello,Is there any way to replace the keyboard of X1C 3rd gen with the keyboard of 2nd gen?  

Answer:keyboard of X1 Carbon 2nd gen on X1 Carbon 3rd gen

Quote from this thread:[quote]Gen 2 keyboard has 2 inputs: Dynamic Function Board (DFB)(5pin) + power button (3pin) ---> 8pin on MB side, and regular keyboard. However, Gen 3 keyboard's Fn is integrated to keyboard cable but not 8pin input (only 3 pin power button). Embeded Controller Chip (EB) is still taking this as Gen 2 input. So Fn is not mapped at EC level. Since EC is part of UEFI BIOS, you need remove BIOS chip from MB and reprogram the EC firmware to make it work.[/quote]

 HiI own a X1 Carbon Gen 2 thinkpad and wonder if it is possible to replace the current keyboard with a X1 Carbon gen 3 keyboard (with proper mouse buttons), or if it will not fit?I have tried to check the manuals and the connectors seems similar although some things, such as the fingerprint reader, seems different. I have no problem "loosing" the adaptive keyboard and fingerprint reader if I can have all the functionality of the keyboard and trackpoint on the new "keyboard" (i.e. the gen 3 frontpanel).

Answer:X1 Carbon Gen 3 Keyboard on X1 Carbon Gen 2

I am interested in this exact topic as well. Looks like the Gen 3 keyboards lack the adaptive keyboard - that clear stripe on the top that changes. The FRU for these X1 Carbons seem to be the whole keyboard, adaptive part, trackpad and bezel - they go for 150 USD or so. Problem is we don't know if it will work given the model year differences. A nice alternative would be just to replace the trackpoint. They came close with this one, but it is no macbook in terms of tactile feel of the pad. I really am having a hard time with it and it's been about a month.  Lenovo please help!

So quite simply, if I loved infinity engine games, most notable the Baldur's Gate saga, will I love dragon age?

I want to play that type of game on a more modern engine. So is Dragon Age what I'm looking for? It has been called the "Spiritual Successor" but I want to know from people who have actually played it before I go and pay 60 bucks for it

Thanks

Net year around tax seaon, I will be building a new gaming rig. I don't need anything other than the actual tower and it's guts. Just hopingt hat this will be enough to push some wicked frame rates. Here it goes:

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4Ghz

This setup, with discounts, is totalling $915.91.

Now, I am hoping that this setup will give me what I want. I don't think there should be any bottlenecks with the hardware, but not sure. Also, not sure if the PSU will be enough to push everything, or be enough to get another 5770 after a while to CrossFireX them. What do you folks think of this build? I know I won't be getting anything for several months, and new technology will be out long before that, bu... Read more

Answer:$1,000 AMD Dragon Platform

The CPU your using is similar to the one I'm using (just better), the hard drive your using is the same brand - I think. And the RAM is the same I'm gonna use as well, I just forgot to post that on my topic.

And yes, very nice.

I just looked the computer case and I must say, nice.

Please tell me if there is any hope of pulling this program up without reinstalling. The error messages I am getting are below.


"Dragon Naturally Speaking isn't installed completely. Please try reinstalling." When I click "Details" the following is displayed:
" Cannot find the file 'C:\WINDOWS\speech\vcmd.exe' "


It also pops up a separate dialog box that says "This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose "Switch To" to activate the other program and fix the problem."

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Dragon DSN 11 trouble

DNS 11 is the latest version of the product. Did you register the program when you installed it? You can register and then get support from them at http://www.nuance.com/support/dragon-naturallyspeaking/index.htm. Did you check the Windows event logs to see if there's anything in there?

Answer:Dragon Notes will not run -

Bewildered4 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! The Win10 Upgrade is know to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine.

In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number.

Could anyone advise me on easy to use dictation software I can use to save as a word doc (I talk into the machine - it saves as text).

I have heard mixed reports on Dragon Speaking Natrually - a link to a free trial would be cool or any other help/suggestions?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Dragon dictation xp

None of them are perfect because they have to be "taught". Dragon Naturally Speaking is the best known and been around the longest.
