Lately, sometimes I open Dragon and start dictating and the punctuation commands go weird.

It is not a recognition problem, as the words are not similar and even if I try saying them several times I get the same mistake over and over. And then other days I open Dragon and it works perfectly, all punctuation marks are OK.

I use Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium Español Version 13.00.000.330.

Thank you for your help!
