When you can figure out things on your own without speaking or chatting with an sales representative that is a very satisfying feeling. The problem started when I was trying to create some new content but was unable to get DragonNaturallySpeaking working.
Two of my programs were conflicting, it seems that Adobe shockwave was interfering with Dragon NaturallySpeaking and I was unable to use the program.
I was able to correct this issue by disabling some add-ons I was so glad that I was able to fix this problem so quickly and also build my confidence up until the next problem comes my way.
