Good news and what looks like a first.

Dragon Naturally Speaking 4 working under Wine.

reqd riched32 and comdlg32 native from 98SE

Gentoo Linux , 2.6.10-nitro4 kernel

Fresh Wine installation
installed IE6 using sidenet

Install Dragon from CD no major issues.
copy missing dll's
ran up Dragon , enter user name , setup sticks at setting mike level but  
exits cleanly.

#wine gentrain.exe

picks up user name , dictated training text .

It saves the vocab/voix profiles the drops out with 3 repeat errors but  
the profile is safe

#wine natspeak.exe

Can now dictate in stand-alone mode as in windoze.

I now need some help with the guts of Wine to see if I can capture the  
keystrokes output by Dragon and pipe it to another Linux thread.

Any suggestions on that?

TIA :)
