Can't dictate into Outlook (or Word) with Dragon? Outlook crashing?

Some Dragon users experience poor performance/slow performance in Microsoft Outlook and/or Word. Sometimes Outlook/Word is non-reponsive (frozen) or crashes.
And/or users experience loss of Full Text Control (FTC, a.k.a, “Select-and-Say”) when dictating into Outlook.
Dragon’s Outlook add-in is enabled.The DragonBar’s Full Text Control Indicator is off.

This problem seems to occur much more frequently with corporate and government users.

The issue is probably a Windows access problem.
Go to (or have your admin go to) the following directory


Select your user name and change the Windows permissions to Full Control.
