First, the way Dragon works in terms of listening for commands is determined by the type of commands and whether or not KnowBrainer or VoiceComputer is loaded first. Therefore, if you launch KnowBrainer and then open VoiceComputer, the KnowBrainer commands will take precedence. There is nothing that we can do in such cases to make both applications play nice with one another. It's just the way Dragon works.
Second, I can't duplicate your problem with InTags not functioning when loading KnowBrainer last. Works fine for me.
Third, consider that water weighs 63 pounds per cubic foot. If you load 2 ft.Â³ of water into a barrel it's going to require more force to lift the barrel. To a certain extent whether or not there is enough umph in your hardware configuration, there is always the possibility of having insufficient umph to lift the barrel, so to speak. For example, I'm currently running VoiceComputer and KnowBrainer 2017 on my Coreâ„¢ i7 4770K with 32 GB of DDR3 1866 MHz RAM and 8 MB of L3 cache.I don't experience any slowdown in dictation, nor do I experience any conflicts with InTags. I do notice a very tiny, and I stress TINY, impact on the execution of InTag commands, but given that the barrel ways 126 pounds, that doesn't surprise me. Nevertheless, I only load both for testing purposes. If I'm running on my system I either launch VoiceComputer, which is significantly better in many cases, or I launch KnowBrainer for looking at certain commands as well as testing their functionality. I never run both at the same time except in this instance to test your issues.
Lastly, it doesn't make sense, in the long run, for us to make VoiceComputer and KnowBrainer play nicely together. As good a relationship as I have with Lunis, it doesn't make sense for him to make both products play nicely together either. Neither of us have the time or the resources to do that.
Our responsibility is to report what we find relative to both products running together, neither of us can fix them. The primary reason for that is that they are completely different and Dragon is what it is relative to command execution.
We're not trying to tell you what to do or what not to do, what third-party applications to use or not to use. However, consider that our emphasis has to be on VoiceComputer, and we provide that support as is, out of the box.
Since I know, under the circumstances that you report, that I can't duplicate your problem, with only one very, very minor issue, which is understandable given the conditions, all we can do is report what we find.
