So my friend has been showing me Dragon and I've been playing with it a fair bit, and theres just one question I have with it that I can't seem to find an answer for.
Is there a way to lower the time needed for Dragon to react to voice commands? For instance if I set up a program to run with just single word commands, would it be possible to set Dragon to instantly react when it sees the command has stopped?
In some cases I would like a very fast reaction time to commands, however I'm not sure how viable of an option this is.
Thanks for any thoughts,
Unfortunately, command response time is really a function of Windows performance and hardware configuration. There is no way to influence the speed at which commands are executed. Also, some types of commands are slower than others. For example, Natural Language Commands (i.e., the built-in commands for specific applications which are called constrained grammars) will execute much faster than custom commands because they are written in C++). Custom commands, commands that you create, are executed more slowly depending upon the type of command and the extent of the amount of code to be executed. Once the command recognition appears in the results box, DNS is done. The execution of the command is then handed off to Windows and SAPI and there is no way to influence the speed of execution of these commands after that.
