Sean et al,

Not sure where the setting is found on the Mac, so you'll have to hunt for it. There is a setting in the DNS TOOLS, OPTIONS menu to adjust the pause before recognizing commands. This brings up a plethora of adjustments and settings. Choose COMMANDS and then adjust the slider bar for the PAUSE REQUIRED BEFORE COMMANDS. Student can learn to play with this as he gets better with his dictation skills.

Hope this helps.

I know you can use the Control key in Windows to force Dragon Naturally Speaking to recognize a command, but cannot find any record of such an option for Mac.
