Hello forum members-
Last week I started having difficulty shutting down VoicePower (version 11.80.1) using my voice and manually. When I say “open VoicePower” the dialog box comes up, but the options for opening speech and shutting down speech are grayed out. When I tried to shut down VoicePower using the VoicePower icon in the system tray at the bottom of the desktop, the option for shutting down speech is not available from that location.
I have also experienced inconsistent performance with VoicePower and did a repair on Saturday, 11/17/12, but that did not help. Why do you think I am having this difficulty? Any suggestions would be helpful.
Do you think I should try a complete uninstall and reinstallation? FYI, I am using windows XP on an HP i5-540M computer with 2.53 Ghz and 2.98 ram. I am also having tremendous problems with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5 but will address those questions to the knowbrainer forum.
Thanks for any suggestions. Regards, Rita
