Problem: Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Windows Live Writer 2011


image_thumb14 Problem: Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Windows Live Writer 2011If you’re using Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Windows Live Writer 2011 you’ll notice a new problem with the latest release of the Windows Live Writer beta.

The specific problem is that with every new sentence, every new phrase, in every new set of words or corrections that you make; everything begins with the capitalization. this wasn’t a problem in the previous versions of Windows Live Writer, but I guess with the introduction of version 2011- it’s a problem now.

It’s not a major issue, the problem can be resolved with a simple checkbox…

The problem does not exist in Dragon NaturallySpeaking; it’s doing exactly what it needs to do…

The problem seems to be presenting itself with Windows Live Writer 2011. I’m not exactly sure as to when the problem actually started happening, but for me this is been occurring for the last couple of weeks and I don’t think is related to any other plug-ins because I tested that.

The solution that I found was going into Windows Live Writer’s options.

The problem seems to be existing in the spelling options for Windows Live Writer.

You have to turn off the automatic ‘correct common capitalization and spelling mistakes’.

Once you make this adjustment, you can go back to the composition of your blog post, and start dictating with Dragon NaturallySpeaking without any issues.

Ironically, this problem doesn’t seem to be in presenting itself with Microsoft‘s voice recognition; it’s only affecting Nuance‘s Dragon Naturallyspeaking.
 

So, I hope this helps you out and gets you back to blogging…
