Is Excel hopeless?

While I train, and train, and train both "sell”, "cell”, and others like "spell”, DNS only gets it right 50% of the time. Also, my alphanumeric cell coordinates are misrecognized over half the time. This is such a drag!

I need to look into the alternatives... maybe there are solutions I am not aware of. If identifying a cell is a command, I could perhaps use command mode. I also toggle between using a single letter and using the military also that word - I wonder if this gets me into trouble.

hi Molly,

In looking at the Microsoft Excel portion of the Dragon help, you should be a good just say something like "Row five column B". Have you tried that? That should work in command mode, as it's not dictation.
