following settings must be made:
• Enable the speech recognition functions in
the SpeechExec seetings menu under Settings
> General settings > Speech recognition >
Speech recognition settings.
• The Dragon user profiles must be set up
separately in Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
The following settings are optional:
• Enable the use of roaming user profiles
under Settings > General settings > Speech
recognition > Speech recognition settings.
• Enable the use of templates under Settings
> General settings > Speech recognition >
Templates if you want the text to be inserted
into a predefined text document.
• Enable the automatic start of the recognition
queue under Settings > General settings
> Speech recognition > Recognition &

Frequently asked questions
The PC sound system is not functioning

Drive letter conflict with the Digital
Pocket Memo
When installing the Digital Pocket Memo
on a PC with Windows XP, the operating
system automatically assigns a drive for the
Digital Pocket Memo. This drive appears as
a “removable disk” in Windows Explorer.
Sometimes the drive letter assignment for the
Digital Pocket Memo conflicts with an existing
drive letter mapping; this is why the Digital
Pocket Memo cannot be seen in Windows
Explorer and SpeechExec displays the status as
“DPM (disconnected).”
Solution: Map all network drives starting with
drive letters Z, Y, X (in reverse alphabetical
order).
1 Connect the Digital Pocket Memo to the
PC.
2 Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel >
System > Device Manager.
3 Look for an unknown USB device in the list.
4 Select the Unknown Device and click
Remove.
5 Click OK and close the Control Panel
window.
6 Disconnect the Digital Pocket Memo and
reconnect it.
7 The Add New Hardware Wizard will open
automatically. Click Next. Follow the
instructions on the screen. When the
wizard detects the driver (USB Mass Storage
Device), click Next to copy the driver to
the PC.
8 On the last page of the wizard, click Finish
to complete the installation.
