Skipping the "Open" Menu

On a multi-user system, or with a single user with multiple topics, you may set up a system so that the right user/vocabulary is selected from the start. This can be done by using the command line flags "/User" and "/Vocabulary".

If you have a shortcut on your desktop to start NaturallySpeaking, right-button-click, then on the "Target" line where it ends with "natspeak.exe" append (prior to the trailing quote mark) "/User <name>" and/or "/Vocabulary <name>" where <name> is the user or vocabulary name respectively. ("topic" can be used instead of "vocabulary")

Example (Release 10):

"C:\Program Files\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking10\
Program\natspeak.exe" /User Larry

Example (Release 9):

"C:\Program Files\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking9\
Program\natspeak.exe" /User Larry

Example (Release 7):

"C:\Program Files\ScanSoft\NaturallySpeaking\
Program\natspeak.exe" /User Larry

Example (Release 6):

"C:\Program Files\Dragon\NaturallySpeaking\
Program\natspeak.exe" /User Larry

Example (Release 5):

"C:\Program Files\Dragon Systems\NaturallySpeaking\
Program\natspeak.exe" /User Larry

Example (Releases 2-4):

"C:\NatSpeak\
Program\natspeak.exe" /User Larry

There are a total of three command line flags for NaturallySpeaking:

  1. /Diagnose
    puts added information in Dragon.log file when you start NaturallySpeaking
  2. /User <username>
    sets the user for NaturallySpeaking
  3. /Topic <topic-name> or /Vocabulary <vocabulary-name>
    in Deluxe/Professional/Medical/Legal NaturallySpeaking Releases 2-4, sets the Topic/Vocabulary. This does not work properly in the early versions of Release 5.

If the username or topic-name has embedded spaces, then that username or topic-name must be enclosed in quotes.
