What Are the Limitations of Dragon Naturally Speaking 13’s Web Extension Feature?

Here you will find a quick guide on the Limitations of Dragon Naturally Speaking 13 ’Web Extension Feature’. You’ve only got to read along and get to know the relevant information provided to you in this blog.

The Limitations of Dragon Naturally Speaking 13 Web Extension feature:

  • There are a few Dragon Web Extensions that are available in Web browsers and versions. Below is mentioned the list of the Web Browser;
  • Mozilla Firefox, 29 and later version
  • Google Chrome
  • Internet Explorer, 9, 10 and 11 version
  • Now in case you are not using any of the browsers mentioned above, you can still use the existing capabilities for commands and diction of Dragon as well. However, this would be without using the full-text control benefit.
  • You should know that the functions of Dragon differ from web browsers to web browsers. As an example; you cannot select Chrome, hyperlinks by name and commands such as the ‘Refresh page’ option cannot be used. So for using such actions, you are recommended to use the global commands like mouse commands or press commands on the keyboard.

The list of Limitations for Dragon Web Extensions on supported browsers:

  • Here you will find that the playback option is limited to the present dictation of the current field in Web applications such as Gmail and Hotmail. In relation to this, you will not be able to playback dictation for the previous fields if you move to another field. It doesn’t matter if you go back to the field even then will not have access to it.

The following method for opening the ‘correction’ menu while working in Web applications is not supported by Dragon at present.

  • The Hotkey, this is the minus sign key
  • Then the double-click on the selected text
  • The Correction button available on the DragonBar Extras toolbar
  • The ‘Offline Mode’ is also not applicable for working with Web-based documents. And adding to that to play the back dictation you would have to use the voice commands like ‘Play that back’, ‘Read that,’ and ‘Read selection’. This is so as Dragon software doesn’t support the playback of dictation when the menus and buttons are used.
  • If you use the ‘Paste it here’ option for pasting copied text in a Rich Internet Application then the software will paste the last uttered words dictated. For example;
  • Try dictating “this is a test” then say “copy that”; now say “only a test” then “Paste it here”.  The utterance of “only a test” will be found pasted instead of the “this is a test”.
  • This issue is so because the last utterance in a Rich Internet Application is always copied to the clipboard, despite a “copy” command is used or not.
  • The “Undo that” and “Undo last option” commands may not work continuously. This is because the Dictation Box may tend to display text not dictated. This error usually happens when the focus of the application is on a field that cannot be edited, and then you will do the following.
  • You will attempt to open the Dictation Box or
  • You may choose to speak into your microphone
  • This will you will prompt the Dictation Box to open automatically
