While on the subject of dictation bridge, I wrote this yesterday,
but am not sure if it came through or not. This is fair enough,
as I've added to this, and so am hopefully more clear.
Although bugs are ideally posted on gethub, I've found it best to
report them if there is a means of reliably causing them to pop
up. That having been said, this is not the case here, and because
it's not, maybe some of you could help me trace the problem down
so that I have something of substance to report.
The problem I'm experiencing is that NVDA does not speak the
correction panel once it has been restarted. This is the case on
my machine, which is running an up-to-date copy of windows 7, with
the latest release of NVDA. Dictation is not on at startup, and
because this is my DAW, I have no intention of changing that.
So, once I start dictation, I do the following:
1. Go in to notepad to speak/write some text, occasionally
toggling the state of listening by pressing control+left windows.
2. Have generally good luck for a while, but eventually stumble
on to something that breaks in a very odd, and sometimes amusing
3. Select the text by either using the keyboard to do so, or by
saying "select," followed by the incorrect text.
4. Say "correct that," and say the number of the choice I want,
try dictating again, should none of the choices work.
5. When it's got it right, I say ok, and move on; otherwise I
either repeat what I said with a different inflection, or, if
necessary spell what I'm trying to say.
6. Eventually, I find that NVDA has lost focus on notepad...
That's the best way I know to describe the problem.
7. I restart NVDA, which allows me to cursor through, and read
the text in the notepad window again, but with the consequence of
being unable to read the correction panel from that point
forward. I can interact with it, and it will obey my choices, I
just have no idea, until the text is revised in the file, what
I've picked when I say a number, then "ok."
Dictation bridge only resumes working properly after I've
restarted my machine. I said this was unreliable behavior
initially because it's true. There is no set amount of time or
number of dictated phrases which trips it. It's hard to make it
loose focus, but when it happens, it's done until the machine has

Activate that and hen follow the prompts.
