Dragon Dictation is having a problem with puctuation. It started some time before Dec 2011 but I waited for the OS upgrade to see if the problem went away. It hasn't.
Here's the problem. I use it to text, and when I say "comma" or "question mark" or any punctuation, a space is inserted before and after the mark. For example - "Hey , where are you ? "
This used to work beautifully, only inserting spaces after punctuation marks but now I have to edit every message I send. I tried getting support from the folks at Nuance (since Dragon Dictation is their product) but they told me it was a Genius Button issue and I'd have to get support from T-Mobile.
So, T-Mobile, I could use some support. I'd really like this to work properly again.
I repeated what you said "hey, where are you?" And it works fine on my mytouch. I have only done the first upgrade from froyo to gingerbread. What version are you using?
That's interesting. I'm on 2.3.4. But it was doing this before the upgrade (and I was really hoping the upgrade would fix it).
Yes, I am 2.3.4, 2.32.531.1. I thought that I had another update available but I dont, I am current. Sorry no help.
Hey, I appreciate the response. At least now I know it's a local problem - something I may be able to fix.
Do you pause before saying "comma"? You've probably already tried various ways. Just thinking out load. I was not pausing at all.
I usually speak normally (meaning no long pauses for punctuation). I just tried it with practically no pauses at all and it didn't make a difference.
Bummer, all I can think of is a factory reset. We have the same phone and same software, wierd.
Before diving off the deep end and doing a factory reset, you should try clearing data from dragon dictation. Just in case its just a settings problem - go to settings> applications> manage applications> running applications> dragon dictation> clear data. Let me know how it goes.
Sorry it took so long to reply.
I actually tried this as soon as I saw it, but no luck. Thanks, though.
Sorry I couldn't help. Here's an interesting fact. I tried using dragon dictation via genius button, and no problem, worked great. Then I tried the same command to the same person but using it threw the messaging app, and guess what? There was a space before and after the punctuation mark. Idk if there is a problem with our phones or dragon dictation. My bet its the latter.
Well, dragon dictation seems to have gone away. My messages app now seems to be using Google voice. If anyone knows how to get dragon back let me know.
Thanks for bringing this up. You guys might be able to find more info about this on the developer's site here.
I believe there's a few versions of this app on the Android Market, so just do a search for "Dragon dictation" and you will find a few options, if you somehow lost the app but want it back.
Hope this helps.
Thanks very much, but...
The link is to the Apple apps. Searching the Android market I get no hits on dragon dictation, and when I go to the dragonmobileapps site I see they're not listing dragon dictation as an Android app. So it looks like they've dropped dictation for Android. (A condition of making it available for iOS, perhaps? /tinfoil-hat)
Hm, well if this helps here's a more direct link to their support areas.
I noticed on their support side, some versions are now called FLEXT9, so perhaps that may be the label it goes by for your model?
I did find a few apps on the market via my SGS2, Dragon Go may be what you're looking for.
Also, do you know what software version you've got? Sometimes as apps get updated for later versions, they stop working on previous firmware versions. Check yours here.
