I've just started using DNS in Studio, dictating into the target segment and not using the dictation window. Now, when I pause between words, DNS does not insert a space between the words. I did not have this problem when I was using the dictation window. Has anyone else noticed this?
Never had this problem. I just made a test pausing between every single word and Dragon each time inserts a space. Which version of Dragon do you use?
I'm using DNS premium version 12.0.
I had the same thing using version 12. If I pause too long. If I say "spacebar" before I start again then all is well.
Well, version 12 is the best available version, optimised to cope with pauses, hesitations, etc. (according to Nuance, and it is is probably true), so I don't understand the problem...I wrote to my contact at Nuance to see if they have already heard of such a problem. They are going to download Studio 2014 evaluation version to make their own tests.
Personally, I tried again with long pauses and it works correctly...
This being said, when using Dragon in a CAT tool, it is alwaysbetter to think about the translation before dictating it and to dictate a sufficient portion of text, also to give Dragon enough context to produce a good result
I've seen the same thing, but having observed this on multiple occasions, I don't think it's a matter of omitting the space, what I've seen happen is the cursor go back one space, it's like DNS somehow interprets the pause as a command to go back.
Has this behaviour changed with the latest version of DNS and Studio?
I haven't seen it with the latest versions.
Here is what I've posted somewhere else recently: "...after dictating a few words, then pause to think about what will follow, Dragon/Studio 12.5 erratically type a space *or not", be there a space already or not. If you add a space, they may type correctly... or add a second space. I couldn't identify any constant in this behavior, so there is no way I can think of to get around the problem, which would really have to be solved probably jointly by Dragon and Studio. The time lost is an important fraction of the time saved by Dragon." So good news that bdemyttenaere contacted Nuance... Hope Dragon 13 will do better, but I'm not sure if it's available for French yet.
Because of the way that SDL designed the Studio user interface, none of the Dragon editing and correction commands that would normally work in, for example, a Microsoft Word document, will work in Studio. You will have to tell Dragon to capitalize each segment. (Unless you use the Studio setting to automatically capitalize each segment -- but other Studio users have had serious problems using Studio and Dragon together when this setting is used ...)
The proper insertion of spaces is also a problem. Unlike Microsoft Word windows, Dragon can't access the text in the Studio editor, so it doesn't know where the spaces or words are and therefore cannot insert spaces properly if you pause too long.
Any corrections have to be done manually (since Dragon has no idea where the words are in the Studio editor), although I think Nora mentioned being able to do some editing/correction in Studio using KnowBrainer with Dragon, or using commands she has written.
