Hello otdpaul I have used this Dragon software before. Although I dont have it installed on this system and have not used it for a few months, I might install it again to help you here.

What problem exactly are you having with Excel? Is it navigating around the cells or entering the data?

Regards

Benimur says:
Hi, how can I help you pls?

Benimur says:
I understand, give me a sec to check on the Dragon NaturallySpeaking specs

otdpaul says:
dragon naturally speaking9preferred does not work on microsoft excel

Benimur says:
Copy that, I am not familiar with DragonDictate, but from what I did find is that an update is needed in your readme.wri file (located in the DragonDictate directory) and/or REPLACE2.DDX from Dragon's web site.

otdpaul says:
I just purchased it it was installed on a differant computer with Vista and it worked

Benimur says:
I see, then chances are what you need to check/update is your Excel or MS Office

Benimur says:
Did I understand your earlier post, on your PC DragonDictate works on all other Microsoft programs except Excel?

otdpaul says:
how do I do that,yes it works everywhere else

otdpaul says:
I am computer illiterate so use simple steps and languge

Benimur says:
No prob. to update your MS excel program, open excel as you would normally open any other program

otdpaul says:
ok it is open

otdpaul says:
Benimur are you still there?

Benimur says:
still on, sorry power failure?

Benimur says:
To update Excel, open it as you would any other Windows program. Go to Help, click on Check for updates.

Alternately, you can open your browser (IE or Mozilla) and open the Microsoft Website and look for Office update

    Hi,

    Sorry our live session was interrupted, power failure my end (on and off). Way down below is a copy of our initial session. Immediately after this are my suggestions.

    To update Excel, open it as you would any other Windows program. Go to Help, click on Check for updates.

    Alternately, you can open your browser (IE or Mozilla) and open the Microsoft Website and look for Office update.

    Initially, pls verify that your macros (in Excel) have the necessary command lines.

    Pls post back soon as you have updated your Excel as well as Vista's Speech Recognition Software.

    Good luck and kind regards.

What is the best voice recognition software for Windows 7

the voice recognition system built into windows 7 is quite good, however if you do not wish to use that, you might find Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Premium (199$) extremely good, or if that's not in your budget, Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 Home ($99) is also well to do.

Other than that, there is also TalkingDesktop($89) that is also quite good.
