Vivaldi and Dragon NaturallySpeaking Speech recognition

  • Hello. I just read about Vivaldi in WebUser magazine. I like it so far. Unfortunately though it isn't responding very well with my speech recognition software Dragon NaturallySpeaking 13. Some things work OK such as, "page down", "go to bottom", "go to top" etc. but things like "go to previous tab" causes it to jump 2 or 3 tabs back, and "close tab" doesn't work.

    Has Vivaldi been tested with speech recognition software? There's normally a plugin for each browser that Dragon NaturallySpeaking needs to have installed to work with each browser.

  • Thanks for your reply. Are you saying it should work ok with Dragon Naturally Speaking and Vivaldi is compatible with it? It doesn't feel like a bug, more like non functionality.

    I do not know if it works. I just thought you wanted to report, that it does not work, and liked top report a bug.

  • Thanks :) I don't think it's a bug as such, it just seems that it isn't compatible with Dragon Naturally speaking. All other browsers have a plugin or extension that needs adding to allow compatibility. I was just thinking as there are possibly millions or at least hundreds of thousands of people that use speech recognition software Vivaldi would want to make sure it works with it if trying to tempt users away from the major browsers - all of which do work with it. I for one would definitely try swapping over to Vivaldi but not if it doesn't work with my speech recognition software :)
