One caveat about foreign language versions of Dragon: If your Windows
operating system and/or MS Office is English/American, the commands to
control the computer will not work properly-Dragon expects the commands
to be in the language it understands! I ran into that problem installing
German Dragon on a US Windows machine.

Hi ATHEN List,

I'm sorry for the cross posting-I'm following the advice of Gaier
regarding the installation of ENGLISH and FRENCH versions of Dragon
NaturallySpeaking-can this be done? If so, how does one go about

I am 99% sure that you can because I remember a Dragon user (Wink
Harner, I believe) talking about doing exactly that. Wink is on the
ATHEN list, so you might want to repost the question there.

I believe that the hardest thing was getting someone to sell her the
French version...they don't tend to market it outside of Europe (and
maybe Canada??).

Good luck!

Hi Listers,

I have a professor who needs to do work in both languages and I was
wondering if any of you knew if it was possible to install both ENGLISH
& FRENCH versions of DNS 9.0 on one PC. I've searched through the
knowledgebase at Nuance.com and was unsuccessful in finding if this was

Thanks ahead of time for your assistance!
