However, I still don't have any answer to the problem I have - namely, I must go into microphone setup every time I start dictate. This is immensely frustrating. Is this by design, of is there some setting I can use to stop this.
I posted earlier in this thread that I had this problem. Not now. To resolve it I did the following. I set up my sound settings as I required, in my case SoundFlower, LineIn, Plantronics Voyager Pro and the Plantronics BUA 100 b/t adapter. I then created a new profile in Dragon Dictate 2.5.1 and did the appropriate voice training. Only then did I delete the two previous profiles that I had used before. When I quit DD and then activated it again the mic settings were in place. There was no need to go in to Mic setup any more.
I have no idea why this occurred because I have used the same mic plus adapter etc for over a year and a half. The previous profile worked flawlessly with this setup. To make sure that I do not have this problem again I follow the same procedure every time I use DD. I first plug in the BUA 100 adapter, then activate my Plantronics Voyager Pro and finally activate LineIn. The last step is to select Dragon Dictate and when it loads I only have to turn on the mic ON and off I go.
I don't know if it is my imagination, but DD appears to be more responsive and accurate since I did the above procedure. Currently I am really impressed with it's performance.
