The Acoustic and Language Model Optimizer dialog box
Acoustic Optimization and Language Model Optimization together are referred to as Accuracy Tuning. Use the Acoustic and Language Model Optimizer to perform Accuracy Tuning and increase your recognition accuracy. The tool adds up to 180 minutes of accumulated acoustic data from your dictations and corrections and any acoustic training you performed to your user profile. It also adds word sequences you often used to the Language Model.
The Optimizer requires data to be present in the acoustic archive to perform Accuracy Tuning. If you attempt to run the Optimizer before the data has accumulated, a message indicating that there is not enough data may appear.
By default, Dragon retains 180 minutes of acoustic data to add to your user profile. You can change this amount on the Options dialog box—Data tab.
If you enabled the Roaming feature, the Acoustic and Language Model Optimizer is disabled. For information on running Accuracy Tuning on your Roaming user profiles, see Scheduling Accuracy Tuning for Roaming users.
Because optimization can take some time to complete, you can schedule the Optimizer to run at a convenient time. You can schedule Accuracy Tuning from Administrative Settings
For more information on the Accuracy Tuning process, including prerequisites, see About Accuracy Tuning.
If you enabled Correction Only mode, you must disabled it before running Accuracy Tuning.
