How to Fix Common Issues with Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4

Dragon Medical Practice Edition is the best on premise solution for professional grade text-to-speech solution. Many medical practitioners use it in their daily practice and have a lot of success dictating their patient notes into an EMR or EHR. However, Dragon is not without issues, and what you may not know is that we offer complimentary support for all of our Dragon customers, covering the lifetime of the product.

This series will examine some of the most common mistakes our customers experience while using Dragon and outline practical solutions to resolve those issues so you can stop worrying and get back to dictating as soon as possible.

I will often have customers call in asking for help because their profile is failing to load, or the mic won’t connect like it normally does. Sometimes it may appear that you can no longer dictate in Dragon Medical Practice Edition at all. All of these issues can be caused by a corrupt speech profile.

A corrupt speech profile is caused when certain files that store the profile on your PC are damaged or corrupted over time. Sometimes this can be caused by the way your file permissions are set. Another common cause of a corrupted Dragon Medical Practice Edition speech profile is an antivirus blocking key dragon files. The last potential cause is your UAC settings preventing the Dragon Medical Practice Edition Software from accessing your speech profile.

This fix can help troubleshoot problems with loading Dragon Naturally Speaking related to a corrupt dragon profile.

  • Make sure that Dragon Naturally Speaking is closed first.
  • Press the Windows Key + R to bring up the Run box.
  • type: %AllUsersProfile% and press Enter.
  • Windows XP Users:
  • Go to Application Data -> Nuance, then open the NaturallySpeaking folder and go to the Users folder.
  • Windows Vista or above:
  • Go to the Nuance folder, then open the NaturallySpeaking folder and go to the Users folder.
  • Now, go into the folder which is your Dragon username.
  • Rename the ‘current’ folder to ‘corrupt’.
  • Rename the ‘backup’ folder to ‘current’.
  • Open up Dragon and wait for it to load.
  • On the Dragon Bar click NaturallySpeaking -> Manage Users.
  • Click on your name and then click Advanced -> Backup to create a new backup and wait for it to finish.
  • You may now delete the ‘corrupt’ folder.

The next time you experience issues dictating, try the steps listed above and see if they repair your speech profile so you can get back to dictating in Dragon Medical Practice Edition.  I would also recommend checking your antivirus, permissions, and UAC settings to see if any of them are interfering with Dragon. Although this solution may work temporarily you won’t notice a long term change unless you fix the root cause.

What exactly is Dragon Medical One?

Ever heard of Dragon Medical One? Dragon Medical One is a great alternative for medical professionals who would rather pay small monthly fees for Dragon rather than the large upfront payment that Dragon Medical Practice Edition requires. Dragon Medical One is also a cloud based license, which means that Dragon will not have to get to know your voice, and you will not have to create a profile. All of the voice recognition data is stored in the cloud rather than on your hard drive so that you will never have to transfer data from computer to computer to get Dragon to recognize your voice. Also, Dragon Medical One is meant for one user, but can be installed on an unlimited amount of computers rather than Dragon Medical Practice Edition which limits you to four computers.

The History of Smart Speakers

Smart speakers, along with their voice assistants, are gaining more popularity by the day. But what users may not know is that Nuance, the creators of Dragon Dictation, formed the backbone of all modern voice assistants when they released Dragon back in the early 90’s – back when it cost upwards of $6,000.

Thankfully, now Dragon is much more affordable, and if you reach out to request a price quote, there’s a chance we’ll be able to cut quite a bit more off the top.
