Dragon Naturally Speaking: How to have DNS type out command words such as "period"?
Posted on 2013-05-16
I am using Dragon Naturally Speaking 12.5 on Windows.
I'm fairly proficient with it, but came across an issue. I am having to dictate the word "period", as in 'accounting period' or 'fiscal period'.
DNS always hears 'period' as a command and inserts a 'full stop' / dot, but I want it to occasionally actually type the word.
I know I can say "Spell" and spell out the word, but it is obviously a bit tedious to constantly say "spell p e r i o d".
Is there some shortcut to have it type out words that are reserved for commands?
Reviewing the help file, every mention of "period" seems to be related to the command, and I'm not seeing any tips on how to spell out the words reserved by commands.
