Also, if you're using newer than Windows XP, note Joewinograd's comment about NirCmd.exe

I thought that was stored in their Dragon Naturally Speaking profile

Agreed with cantoris - the only other thing to check is what kind of mics the users are on? If you have several users, the mic volume setting will probably need to be slightly different for each of them to take into account the volume they speak at. SpeechMikes should be slightly more forgiving of this and headsets slightly less.

Your users can go to Audio -> Check Microphone (depending on your version) in Dragon and Dragon will do a volume/quality check and set the correct microphone volume level itself, as long as they speak at their regular dictation volume. We'd usually train users to do this if they notice the accuracy drop off, as it will also allow Dragon to correct for some changes in background noise.
