    IE 8 and Dragon 9.5 in Windows Vista

    Anyone having problems with their Dragon NaturallySpeaking with Internet explorer eight? When I speak out the words file or favorites etc., and the menu will come down, then I speak what I want in that menu and it just doesn't work at all. Is there a way to correct this? Anyone experiencing this?

    Hi Rick:

    Sometimes it's not too good to be an early adopter with some new software. I realize that Microsoft pushed out IE 8. I would suggest that you roll back to IE 7. I am still using Internet Explorer 6 on one of my computers with DNS 10 Pro.

    Hey PN,

    I just did the rollback, it worked out perfectly. Thanks for the link. I wonder how DNS 10 preferred would work with IE 8?

    Rick, you're welcome. I have no plans to matriculate up to Internet Explorer 8 at this time.

    Ie 8 and a new version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10.1 do not work good together, with Windows vista anyway, and you did not hear it from the but there is a letter out from the Department of Defense not to use ie 8 at this time because there were too many loopholes, if they had it on their computers they were told to uninstall it. I was running ie 8 and I had problems went back to version 7 :-) if it's not broken don't fix it.
