Additional Comments

I installed using a 32-bit wineprefix and pre-installing dotnet452, which should give installation the best chance of succeeding. 

DNS 13 used to install (poorly) and run but now hangs up on the last instruction. See bug 46160 for latest news. 

Sadly, there is now no known running version of Dragon Naturally Speaking. DNS 13 is the closest to running. There is no version 14 Standard that I know of, and 15 may have multiple bugs and is not installable.  

This bug should be fairly easy to fix, and so I am hopeful.
