First, is there a reason why you haven’t enabled the Microsoft Office commands (I.E., MS Word Commands, MS Excel Commands, MS PowerPoint Commands, MS Outlook Commands)? I would assume that you would unselect these because you’re not using Microsoft Office, but you know the old saying about assumptions. Please let me know.
Second, if you’re using Adobe Acrobat, which are you using Reader or the full version of Adobe Acrobat (i.e., Pro or Standard)? If you’re using Acrobat Reader, then unselect the commands for Adobe Acrobat. If you using Adobe Acrobat Reader, then unselect the commands for Adobe Acrobat. You only need the set of commands for the version of Adobe Acrobat that you’re using. You can save on resources by disabling one of the other.
Third, the SnagIt commands only work for up to SnagIt 11.03. If you’re using a version of SnagIt any later than that, these commands are not applicable and won’t work properly. That being said, I would assume that you’re not using SnagIt. If so, disable those commands. Also, disable them if you’re using SnagIt 11.04-12.2.1, these commands are not applicable to those versions. Again, you can save on resources by disabling commands for any application that you’re not using. The same applies to the commands for WordPerfect, Thunderbird, and Gmail or Google Chrome commands.
Fourth, I’ve tested the VoiceComputer Mouse commands that you highlight in your post and I’ve tested them under Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 8.1 64-bit. I’ve also tested them under Windows 7 32-bit. They are all working properly for me. Therefore, I have a couple of suggestions and tips.
Sometimes having Dragon’s Options | Commands tab | Enable mouse motion commands enabled when you’re using VoiceComputer can interfere with VoiceComputer’s Mouse commands. I’ve never found this to be true in my case on any one of my four systems, but it’s possible. If you want to use VoiceComputer’s Mouse commands, remove the checkmark from Enable mouse motion commands. This takes effect immediately and if you need them, you can always go back and reenable that option.
As with any commands (i.e., Dragon, KnowBrainer, VoiceComputer, etc. ad infinitum), commands must be spoken continuously without pausing between words in such. Pauses when issuing commands will cause commands to tend to fail or execute incorrectly.
If you have the Results box (Dragon) displaying when you issue any of your noted Mouse commands, are the commands recognized correctly in the Results Box? This is one way to test whether or not the commands are being recognized correctly. The other way is to “view recognition history” in Dragon after you issue a VoiceComputer Mouse command that doesn’t work properly. Is the command properly recognized in the Recognition history?
When using Windows 8.1, are you attempting to issue VoiceComputer Mouse commands in the Windows 8.1 Menu (i.e., formerly known as Metro). This can sometimes be problematic even for DNS 13. One of the ways that I ensure that Windows 8.1 is fully Dragon compatible is to use a Start menu program, such as Start8 from Stardock software:
This gives you back the classic Windows Start menu and always resorts to the Windows 8.1 desktop vs. the Windows 8.1 menu (Metro).
- There are times, rare though they may be, where the microphone that you’re using may not pick up your commands or dictation accurately. When you have trouble with any commands, always rerun the Audio Setup Wizard and restart VoiceComputer and Dragon Using the VoiceComputer Control Center. Also, it is possible, though again rare, launching VoiceComputer after configuring such doesn’t properly load the selected commands. In this case, if you go back to the “Configure VoiceComputer” dialog | Enable | Disable VoiceComputer Commands and simply click on the OK button, followed by restarting VoiceComputer (Restart Speech), VoiceComputer will reconfigure your commands (i.e., you will see the small dialog that indicates such on restarting VoiceComputer).
Let me know if I’ve missed anything and/or if you’re still having problems with the Mouse commands.Chucker2014-10-21 12:19:03
