What works

Nothing. Not installable. 

What does not

Cannot install.


What was not tested

The program does not install. 

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13 is still primarily a 32-bit program, so I first created a 32-bit wine prefix, because that's what worked with 12.5. 

The only other modification was winetricks sound=alsa. 

NatSpeak also uses some dotnet. When installing 12.5, using the latest mono worked some of the time, so I kept mono.

  • GPU: Unknown

Additional Comments

I have a Dell XPS-13. 

I have saved the install log, if you would like it.
