Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 now has an update available (Build 15.51.350.021). While you do not need to apply the update, it is best practice to do so.
This build is a full release and is used for a new installation or updating an existing installation.
Improvements & Fixes
- DMPE would sometimes continue to record and recognize dictation although the microphone was stopped. This has been fixed.
- When running the Upgrade User Profiles wizard, the information in the Profile Upgrade details is now correct.
- Custom desktop shortcuts now launch file.
- Misleading add-on notification for non supported browser (Microsoft Edge). This has been corrected.

DMPE 4 Update (4.3.1) Known Issues
|No messages are displayed when clicking the “Check for updates” link from the Help menu||When you check for updates and there are no updates available, DMPE 4.3.1 will not display any messages.|
|The Dragon web extension dialog pops up even after extension is installed in the browser.||The Dragon web extension dialog can re-display every time you start your browser.
This problem is seen when you have not set a default URL in your browser. Setting a default URL to load when you start the browser stops this problem. For example, to set a default URL in Chrome:
Click the Chrome menu (the three dots next to left of the address bar) and select Settings.
Go to On Startup and select Open a specific page or set of pages to add the default URL to load each time you start Chrome.
|You cannot import a user profile with the same name as your open user profile.||If your currently open profile is the same name as the profile you are trying to import, a "please wait" message will quickly flash and nothing else will happen. Dragon cannot finish the import and no profile appears in the display.|
|The Learn from Specific Documents tool does not work with GoogleDocs||If you try to run the Learn from Specific Documents Tool (Tools>Vocabulary Center>Learn From Specific Documents) with Google Doc, Dragon will ask for Google Docs credentials but will not be able to login to Google Docs to run the tool.|
|Slight delays after copying and pasting large documents||Pasting documents of 40+ pages into Gmail may take up to 15 seconds before the microphone can be turned on and you can dictate. Dragon is not hanging; there is simply a delay.|
|Windows "X" (or "Close") button flickers in applications during dictation||When you dictate in DragonPad, Notepad, or Microsoft Word, the "X" (or "Close") button may flicker.|
|DragonBar not restored from Tray mode||The DragonBar does not get restored from Tray mode for some users when Dragon is installed with the Start Dragon minimized in the tray option as the default.
Workaround: Close and relaunch Dragon and Dragon will be correctly in Tray mode and the DragonBar can be restored.
|Error message indicating user profile cannot be closed because applications are using it occurs||Having multiple unsaved documents open while trying to shut down Dragon may trigger this message. Ensure that all documents are properly saved and closed prior to shutting down Dragon.|
