What works

NatSpeak's core function is to produce written text from speech. It does this superbly as long as you dictate into Notepad or the included DragonPad. It also works with other programs in the wine environment.

Installation should be done on a Windows 8 prefix.

What does not

NatSpeak does not work outside the wine environment. Nor should it.

When training a new user, the program crashes a couple of times because of a timeout error caused by some popup boxes. When this happens, just kill the wineserver in a terminal window and start again.


What was not tested

NatSpeak has many little tweaks that are not necessary to its core function. Not all of them have been tested, but some have, and most appear to work.

Additional Comments

Installation should be done on a Windows 8 prefix. Also, use winetricks to set fontfix.
