in trying to figure out a way around my previous post â€“ I can’t get a folder numbered 113 in my favorites folder, in looking in help there is a “configure voice power” icon. When I double click on it it doesn’t open.
<p>While the "configure VoicePower<font face="Arial">" menu option in the icon in the systray will give you some directional and configuration options, it will only open if the microphone is either on or completely off. If the microphone is in sleep mode, it won't open that dialog.</font></p><font face="Arial"> </font><p>You can't double-click on it. You can only double-click on the icon on the desktop<font face="Arial">. Nevertheless, make sure that the microphone is either completely on or completely off, and then right-click on the icon in the system tray (systray) and select "configure VoicePower".</font></p><font face="Arial"> </font><p>As Ron pointed out to you<font face="Arial">, the other option is to simply say "configure voice shortcuts", which will give you more options.</font></p><font face="Arial"> <p>Lastly, one of the problems with numbers in Dragon NaturallySpeaking is that some numbers on accepted when spoken as you would normally think they should be. For example, if you dictate "one thirteen" and that works, fine. If it doesn't work or any time that you dictate a number and it doesn't work, tried dictating the individual digits. For example: Dictate 113 as "one one three". Again, Dragon has problems with some numbers, but the dictating individual digits works pretty much 99% of the time.</p></font>
In the voice shortcuts the option for "Setup for Save in/Open from/Look in Folder Commands" requires the following:
1. The Full Directory Path. When entering the directory path, you'll have to make absolutely sure that what you enter gets you to where you want. If it doesn't access to that folder when you issue the command (i.e., the Full Directory Path is incorrect), then the command will not execute or will not execute properly. So the Full Directory Path is a critical entry. It may take some testing to get it exactly the way VoicePower wants it. In addition, one thing that helps is to do a general save and look at the path as it's displayed in Windows Explorer. I often copy it and then pasted into the Full Directory Path text box and then test the command. If I need to, I make the appropriate modifications by simply going back into that particular entry.
2. Once you have the correct directory path and you have given it a command name, then you can issue any one of the commands listed under "Resulting Commands". However, keep in mind that VoicePower, like Dragon, requires that you issue the command exactly as it's listed. For example:
Say "save to my Triona folder", "open from my Triona folder", etc. just as they are shown verbatim in the dialog.
When using the voice shortcuts for saving files, opening files, or moving Outlook e-mails to a particular Outlook folder, or changing to a specific Outlook folder, most VoicePower users initially, and even those of us who have been doing it forever, forget that the "folder" part of the command is required. Otherwise, the command will not execute. So, the bottom line is that just as in Dragon, executing VoicePower commands requires verbatim issuance of the command. Leave off any part of it or failing to speak it verbatim will cause the command to not execute at all.Chucker2011-11-09 08:33:03
Thank you, Chucker:
Forgot to tell you,
I am having quite a challenge setting up the command for: save to a folder in my documents called, "my stuff"
I inputted exactly the path which I copy and pasted.C:Documents and Settings44738My Documentsmystuff
Email me a screen shot of the VoicePower configuration screen that contains the path and the name of the command.
What program are you in when you issue the command?</p><p>If you're not using Microsoft Word, does the command work from Word? </p><div>Do you see that the path:</div><p>C:Documents and Settings44738My Documentsmy stuff</p><p>is being pasted into the Save As directory?</p><p>If not, then what is being pasted?</p>
I am seeing the transaction end on the desktop. At that point a small VP box comes up and tries to do something in the save as box, but it still puts the file on the desktop.
I’ll have to log into your computer to figure out what’s going on.
