Passing a question along from a colleague in the UK.

Is the use of Dragon, particularly the most recent versions, acceptable in
an exam situation particularly because it includes the ability to create
macros? Some have argued that the availability of the macro function
introduces the possibility that this
could allow pre-prepared material ( for example whole paragraphs) to be
inserted into answers when a student is using his/her own computer to
sit for an exam. If the most recent versions are being used during
exams, has concern been raised over the potential for cheating using
macros, and if so, how have you mitigated this concern and the potential
for cheating?
