Using Dragon Naturally Speaking with Microsoft Word


When using Dragon Naturally Speaking with Microsoft Word XP (2002), 2003 or 2007, the subsequent issues with speech recognition may occur: Select-and-Say fails, words are printed twice or general poor recognition.


These issues could also be associated with the Microsoft Office built-in speech recognition software or the Dragon Naturally Speaking add-in could also be disabled.


We recommend enabling the Dragon Naturally Speaking add-in ("dgnword.dll") in Microsoft Word.

Note: If Microsoft Office XP or 2003 is installed then the inbuilt speech recognition must first be disabled. If it's not disabled, then it'll still disable Dragon Naturally Speaking's Word add-in "dgnword.dll". Please follow the steps outlined in Solution #12740 (Tech Note Number: 3118) "Dragon/ViaVoice locks up, freezes or Select-and-Say fails in Microsoft Office applications" to disable the Microsoft Office speech recognition software.

Please follow these steps to re-enable "dgnword.dll" for use with Microsoft Word XP and 2003:
  1. Launch Microsoft Word.
  2. Click on the "Help" menu and choose "About Microsoft Word".
  3. Click the "Disabled Items" button.
  4. Verify that dgnword.dll appears in the list.
  5. If dgnword.dll is in the list, highlight it and then click the "Enable" button.
  6. If dgnword.dll appears more than once, do this for every instance.
Please follow these steps to re-enable "dgnword.dll" for use with Microsoft Word 2007:
  1. Launch Microsoft Word 2007.
  2. Click the Office button.
  3. Choose "Word Options".
  4. Click "Add-ins".
  5. If "NatSpeak Word AddIn" (dgnword.dll) does not appear in the "Add-ins" list then it has been disabled.
  6. Select "Disabled Items" from the "Manage" dropdown list, then click "Go".
  7. Highlight "dgnword.dll" in the "Disabled Items" list and click "Enable".
  8. Click "Close", and then click "OK".
Follow the steps below to re-enable the Dragon Medical Add-in for use with Microsoft Word 2010:
When Microsoft Word crashes or freezes it can disable Add-ins that are enabled and running. Dragon Medical provides one such Add-in for compatibility with Microsoft Word.
  1. Open Microsoft Word.
  2. Click the File menu.
  3. Click the Options button.
  4. Select the Add-in option on the left pane.
  5. Look in the Disabled Items section for the NaturallySpeaking (dgnword.dll) Add-in.
  6. If Dragon is disabled, click on the Manage drop-down menu at the bottom of the window and select Disabled Items.
  7. Select the Dragon NaturallySpeaking (dgnword.dll) Add-in in the Disabled Items window.
  8. Click the Enable button.
  9. Close all dialog boxes.
  10. Close Microsoft Word.
  11. Start Dragon Medical.
  12. Start Microsoft Word.

Dragon Naturally Speaking Support recommends using this outstanding software primarily for 3 functions. In short, use it for voice dictation aimed toward speech-to-text conversion, execute spoken commands, and text-to-speech. It runs on Windows OS. However, another version mentioned as Dragon for Mac is out there for Mac OS.
