Voice or speech recognition includes methodologies and technologies that enable the recognition and translation of spoken language into text by computers and computerized devices. It is also known as "automatic speech recognition" (ASR), "computer speech recognition", or just "speech to text" (STT). Voice recognition applications include voice user interfaces such as voice dialling (e.g. "Call home"), call routing (e.g. "I would like to make a collect call"), appliance control, search, simple data entry, preparation of structured documents, speech-to-text processing, and aircraft (usually termed Direct Voice Input).

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I use Android Auto to connect to my car.  I recently lost the ability to use the voice command "Ok Google". I can still prompt it if I touch the mic on my car dashboard and then voice command whatever I want it to do..

Note: That this has worked before with my current set up. It may of stopped working after a recent phone update, but I can't be sure.

My settings in Android Auto are on to allow voice command. Are there any other settings that might be causing this?

What's the best way to troubleshoot?

I am running Dragon Naturally Speaking Home Version 13 on my Windows 10 computer.  I got the program so that I can take recorded lectures and convert them to text from a WAV or MP3 file.   I can't find out how to do that.  Please help.  Thanks,

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           I currently have Microsoft Word 2013 and wish to use a voice-to-text dictation program, namely, Nuance Dragon Professional, for this application which brings me to the crux of this question.  Which version of Dragon Professional will be compatible with MS Word 2013?  My operating system is Windows 10 just in case this information is needed.  

           Thank you

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I am interested in a headphone microphone which will work best with the Dragon voice to text dictation software.  While my laptop does have an integrated microphone, I am not sure it will be high enough quality to insure the software's accuracy of understanding my dictation of words and sentences.  With that said, any suggestions along with online purchase links for each headphone microphone will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

             George

Hi I am a physician using dragon dictation and use the citrix receiver to login to the EMR. I use the citrix receiver downloaded from the windows web store. The issue with this dictation is that some of the letters towards the end of the dictated sentence do not show up in the dictated text. for example, "25 year old male with headache' will be dictated as "25 year ol". when you check  the recognition history in the dragon dictation software the words are fully recognized but only partially entered in to a dictation. I am using windows 10 based PC. Any thoughts.

We have an MS Access 2K application.  We would like to connect a microphone to the pc and allow the user to dictate text that will be stored in a memo field.

We currently have a form called something like frmInspectionReport .
Currently the inspector opens to this form, clicks, and then types away.

We prefer to create a feature whereas he can use a microphone to dictate his report.  Ultimately, we would like to be able to listen to the dictation, and also read a transcript.

We realize part of this task would involve saving a wav or mp3 file, and keeping track of its name... but that's the easy part...  :-)

Can anyone help?

HI All,

I have a user that she had broken her left hand, and she is typing with her right hand on the keyboard. She asks me if we would have something that she should use, so she can write faster. Would you know anything to help her in this case?

Can you please advise?

Windows 7 SP1 64-bit system unable to update Dragon v15 with Error 13000 from software manager.  I can login to the client Nuance.com account, but do not see any option to download updates.  Is there a download available for just the updates?  Any other thoughts?

What are the choices available for converting spoken words into text --like my iPhone does.  I'd like to speak into my microphone and convert it into a word document. Is there a built-in feature that I'm not using?  Or do I need to purchase something?

I use my iphone alot to record meetings, because I have poor listening skills, or I think I just have selective hearing. To refresh my memory on meeting discussions, i usually listen to my recordings later and write down important details. It's becoming a time consuming process. I want the ability to convert my voice recording from my iphone into a text file so I can view it in text. How can I accomplish this?

Hello,

How do you remove software when it is not included in the Control Panel > Programs & Features folder?

For example, the screenshot below shows something called "FlexNet Connect Common Software Manager" which apparently is clandestinely installed on your system with Dragon NaturallySpeaking (Nuance) voice recognition software. It occasionally pops up and I'd like to just get rid of it.

Fig.
Questions:

• How can an "app" be running (and listed in the Task Manager) but not displayed in Program & Features?

• Is it okay to just find the app in the Program Files,  Program Files (x86), and/or ProgramData and delete whatever folders are there?

• I use Everything (Search Utility). Can I just delete all the files/folders which turn up there when searched for "FlexNet", etc?

• What other/better methods are available to accomplish the same objective.

By the way, I have a Malwarebytes account but I guess it does not consider something like this software as being malicious.

Thanks

Dear Experts,

My clients need to open and listen to a group of .sri files, created by VXI Voice It recorder.  The problem is, the product has not been manufactured, and supporting website for player is no longer available.  I found many file converters that claims to handle SRI, but when I try these converters, it will not open SRI files.  I have tried SONY Voice Editor, Dragon Naturally Speaking, NCH Switch, etc.
Please advise.

Hello Experts,

Can someone please let me know if there is any software / application that will recognise voice, from say a video, a convert that voice to written text, or subtitles or captions?

I'm not sure if I'm making myself clear, but I hope someone understands what I'm trying to say.

i'm working for a doctors office and we have an answering service which answers their call during off hours and forwards a text to the dr. when a patient has an issue.  this answering service is getting increasingly incompetent (rude, beligerant with patients, make lots of mistakes).  i've heard of people using google voice and using the voicemail transcription service to forward a text of a voicemail the patient leaves the dr to the dr's cellphone.  i'm looking for some help setting this up.  i've gone to the google voice site and the google voice help forums.  but, don't understand the process of porting to google voice.  do i have to port the cell phone i want texts forwarded to google voice?  will i no longer be subscribed to AT&T?  i don't understand where google voice begins and AT&T ends.  i understand it's a $20 fee to port the number.  is this a monthly fee? or a one time charge? i have several doctors which are on call. do i have to port all their numbers?  and am i thinking of this correctly? the mobile number is the one you port?  the patient calls the office number ( a land line) and the voicemail is transcribed and forwarded to the cell phone number?

I'm using Google voice typing to catalogue a some bookshelves of books, it's working well but I'm not able to command a new line reliably so my workaround is just to use a word that's easily picked up, like "banana" for example, and then find/replace that word when i'm finished.

This also has the advantage that a pause is not needed, so i can read titles faster, albeit sounding a bit bananas!

I could do this in Microsoft Word if I still had it. Is it possible in Google docs? Or google sheets, or another tool, preferably online, that i can easily copy paste the text to.

Thanks

I want to catalogue some shelves of books without taking them off the shelf. I'd like just to read out the book title, author and publisher and have this logged on my phone. If I do this with Google voice it returns the correct book. How can i save the first result of a search and immediately return Google back to listening mode? This would effectively generate a list by dictation. I have not been able to find an app that does this.
Thanks

Dragon Naturally Speaking often recommends running with UAC disabled.... how dangerous is this?   If I have good anti-virus and anti-malware software is that enough?  (And what would good AV/AM be?)

After performing a clean install of Windows 10, reinstalling my software and restoring my data, I noticed that my Windows partition was considerably larger than it had been prior to upgrading from Windows 7. At the time, I simply assumed that Windows 10 was larger than Windows 7. I accepted that as a reasonable explanation, but couldn't help but notice other symptoms that my partition was growing. I use Acronis's True Image to create a backup of my partition every day. Those backups took longer and longer as the partition grew.

A couple of months after installing Windows 10, I attempted to create a number of virtual machines using both vSphere and VMware. I was not successful. What is significant about that is that I had trouble removing the virtual disks from my system. Recently, while trying to figure out what was taking up all the space on my disk, I came across a 70 gigabyte file under the Virtual Machines directory tree. When I tried removing it, I was denied access. With the help of experts on this site I managed to overcome that obstacle and get the directory removed. Much to my amazement, that single action reclaimed 500 gigabytes of space!? I don't know where the other 400+ gigabytes came from, but I suspect there was something hidden within the Virtual Machines directory tree. The amount of the C: partition being used went from approximately 800 gigabytes down to 282! The next time I ran a backup, it finished in half the time!

Approximately one week later, the…
