First, is your version of Office 2010 32-bit or 64-bit?
Second, if you go into the Options dialog | Add-ins in Microsoft Word, is the NatSpeak Word AddIn listed under the Active Application Add-ins? If not, then you may be prevented from dictating into Microsoft Word.
If that is the case, then click on the “Go” button with COM Add-ins listed in the drop-down list to the right of Manage: and put a checkmark in the NatSpeak Word AddIn box, making sure that after you close that you go back and check it again to make sure that it has been moved to the Active Application Add-ins. Otherwise, it may be disabled, in which case you have to drop the list to the right of Manage: and select Disabled Items and reselect it, followed by making sure that it ends up being added to the Active Application Add-ins as described above.
PS, I just noted that your post on the KnowBrainer forum that included the screen captures show that the NatSpeak Word AddIn is completely missing (i.e., it’s neither in the Active Application Add-ins, nor the Inactive Application Add-ins, nor the Disabled Items. In other words, it’s missing completely.
The first thing to keep in mind is that either your loading Microsoft Word before Dragon, or Microsoft Word 2010 is simply not loading it.
To add the NatSpeak Word AddIn, do the following:
Determine whether you’re using the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Microsoft Word 2010. If you’re using the 32-bit version then the file is dgnword.dll. If you using the 64-bit version, then the NatSpeak Word AddIn is dgnword_x64.dll.
For the 32-bit version of Microsoft Word 2010, dgnword.dll is located in the following location:
C:Program Files (x86)NuanceNaturallySpeaking12Programdgnword.dll
if you’re using the 64-bit version, then dgnword_x64.dll is located in the following location:
C:Program Files (x86)NuanceNaturallySpeaking12Programx64dgnword_x64.dll
- In the Microsoft Word 2010 Options | Add-ins, click on the “Go” button with the options for COM add-ins selected in the drop-down list to the right of Manage:
Click on the Add button and go to the appropriate location as noted in #2 above and select the appropriate NatSpeak Word AddIn. Make sure that there is a checkmark in the checkbox after doing so and then click or say “OK”. Go back into the Microsoft Word | Options | Add-ins and make sure that the NatSpeak word add the is listed under the Active Application Add-ins. If not, take the appropriate action to make sure that it is added to the Active Application Add-ins.
Unless you can get Microsoft Word 2010 to load the NatSpeak Word AddIn into the Active Application Add-ins, then Microsoft Word won’t function and you will continue to be unable to dictate into Microsoft Word.Chucker2013-08-29 08:18:01
