Thank you, Rob, for your efforts to create an Intag-free zone for dictation.
There’s another (simpler?) solution for your problem.
There is another way around this.
Is there any simple way of starting the numbers at say 10?Yes. We use xml command files that can be edited. I’ll attach an edited file as soon as I test it for a while.
A Windows Update killed my computer and I had to reinstall the latest VoiceComputer software. I have Professional not Lite. The display numbers xml file to eliminate numbers 1 to 10 no longer appears to work. You were going to provide this as a configuration option. How would I get this going again? Regards, Stephen
I forwarded you the file that I sent to you a year and a half ago.
Please let me know if it works.
One trick I’ve used is to create some commands in Dragon, so I can output the word or keystrokes I actually want. For example, I use ‘uppy’ and ‘downy’ to hit the up and down arrow keys, respectively. So if you have a handful of words that keep getting misinterpreted, you could create your own substitutions. Like ‘wuhnee’ for ‘one’ and ‘two-ee’ for ‘two’.
I have emailed you. Unfortunately, it did not work.
Thank you. I stopped using VC for business purposes because of this defect. You say one, won, too, two, three, free, for, fore etc. and your work disappears. The old fashioned way of saying “click one”, “click two” etc is safer because it prevents this problem. I have just retired so loss of work is less critical but it would be nice to write out 1 to 5 at least from the numbering sequence.
Others haven’t reported this issue. - It’s sometimes difficult to discern whether a lack of reporting means that users don’t have problems or whether they are resigned to it!
In the next release, I’ll introduce an option that will let users configure whether they want to keep the ‘one to ten’ commands or use ‘pick one to ten’ instead.
- Many have told me that ‘pick’ rolls off the tongue much easier than ‘click’
Of course, where numbering in Edge is continuous from menu to page, then the low number appear in the menu. Recognition errors then often close pages.
