Word 2007 crashes when I use it with Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 10

I am using Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 10 to allow me to speak - rather than type - in all my programs. I am running it on Windows xp, service pack 3. I am not having any problems with it, except when I use it in Word. Invariably, Word crashes when I use it. I have done a Google search for this problem and have found others who also report it. I have yet to see a solution. Does anyone have one?
Thank you

Perhaps the Add-in for Word is corrupted, or there is a conflict. If you run Word in safe mode, does the problem go away?

o start in safe mode is Start button, Run, type winword /safe on the open line. If it worked, when word starts, it should say "safe mode" on the title bar.

Thanks, but it wasn't that. It was simply a corrupt Word file. I did what I described here:

and the problem went away.

Thanks for posting back. Those steps are the manual version of running word in safe mode that I was suggesting. If a problem is document-specific then it could be a corrupt document like you found. Otherwise if the problem is Word in general then the whole safe-mode troubleshooting is next.

Anyway, glad you found the problem. Don't forget to close the question as you see appropriate.

I appreciate that you tried to help, but, sorry, I don't feel you deserve the points.I am going to try to close the question without awarding points.
As I see it, telling me to run Word in safe mode - certainly a helpful idea - is not at all the same as suggesting I have a corrupt Word file, and that I should save the file in .txt format and then open it in Word to see if the file was corrupt.
