    I use Dragon Naturally speaking 8, medical version. I've been having trouble with the cursor moving around and inserting words in the wrong place.

I am assuming that this happens in the Dragon NaturallySpeaking editor window

In that case, select a word or two from somewhere in your document. Press
{Ctrl-x} to cut that text to the clipboad. Then press {Ctrl v} to paste the
same text back in the same place. That should resynchronize Dragon
NaturallySpeaking and allow you to dictate where you want.
Let me know how this turns out.

This would be a keyboard problem or a keyboard bios issue and if ether of them are the case they would need to be replaced.

1. try a diffrent keyboard
2. reinstall the program
3. check for viruses trojen horses or keyloggers.
4. Narrow it down to the motherboard try a diffrent keyboard if that does not shore it up then its got to be a motherboard issue.

I hope this helps

When I am typing he cursor jumps around


It is a fault with Lenovo laptops. My cursor jumps all the time, no matter what software I am using. It is NOT the 'sensitivity' of the touchpad, for my cursor jumps even when I am not typing, even if I don't touch the laptop! I can set the cursor to a certain point on a document and then, after about 30 seconds, it will just jump to another point, even if I am in another room.

Cursor jumps around


Does the cursor jump around when your hands are nowhere near the touchpad? The touchpads are heat and pressure sensitive. I personally have very warm (and sometimes sweaty) hands. I have this problem often when working on laptops. If I hover my hands over the pad, it causes the mouse to move. I've had to take a business card, put tape on one side of it, and use it as a flip-cover for the touchpad on most of my laptops. If the cursor moves around when you're nowhere near the laptop, then you may want to try disabling the pointing stick (if it has one). I've had several clients with laptops where the pointing stick mouse control go crazy and move and click on things.

Typing problem


the problem is where the mouse cursor is. When you begin to type have the mouse cursor as far down the page as possible the glide pad can pick up the slightest variant of pressure and move your text to the position where the mouse cursor is.
