Question: I recently downloaded the Microsoft Office Compatibility PACK Service Pack 2 and the 2007 Microsoft office suite service pack 2. This happened automatically as part of Microsoft automatic downloads. Now I am unable to dictate into Microsoft Word. How can I fix it?
This tends to happen when the NatSpeak Word AddIn (drnword.dll) fails. This AddIn is required for Dragon to be integrated into Microsoft Office Word.
Follow the steps below to re-register the NatSpeak Word AddIn (drnword.dll)
1. Close out of all running applications.
2. Click [Start] > [All Programs] > [Accessories] > [Run]
3. In the [Run] dialog, type: regsvr32C:Program Files (x86)NuanceNaturallySpeaking10Programdgnword.dll”
Note: If Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10.1 was installed to a different location, the path will need to be modified accordingly.
4. Click [OK]. A message should appear stating:
DllRegisterServer in C:Program Files (x86)NuanceNaturallySpeaking10Programdgnword.dll succeeded.
5. Click [OK]
