If you experience issues such as the nVoq.Voice or SayIt client hotkeys not working or the inability to get text to paste into the application when trying to dictate into a third-party application (like an EMR), this may be caused by the third-party application running at a higher administrator level. To allow nVoq.Voice or SayIt to interact with your software, it may be necessary to run the client with administrator privileges.

1. Install nVoq.Voice on your computer if you have not already done so.

2. Close nVoq.Voice if it's running and right-click on the nVoq.Voice desktop shortcut and select Properties.
