I am running Dragon NaturallySpeaking premium (V. 11.5)on Windows 7. I have Dragon set to the "tray icon only".when I opened Dragon today I was unable to get the tray icon to respond to my mouse clicks. That is, if I left click the tray icon the microphone does not come on and if I right-click the icon I do not get the drop down menu. I can turn the microphone on utilizing the keyboard hotkey (+).
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Dragon with no problem. If I start the Dragon with the dragon toolbar on the screen then everything works well, including the tray icon. Then if I set the view to "tray icon only" the tray icon loses functionality. That is it does not do anything if I left or right click it. When I use Dragon commands to open the "options" window and reset the view to Dragon toolbar, the tray icon is still nonfunctional. If I turn off and restart Dragon with the view set to "tray icon only", the tray icon is nonfunctional. If I restart Dragon with the Dragon toolbar at the top, then the tray icon works fine unless it is set back to the "tray icon only". I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion as to how I can I can get back to using just the tray icon rather than having the toolbar take up screen space. Thanks in advance.
