PRB: Dragon not shutting down after program termination
The information in this article applies to:
- SpeechKit 5
- GrammarKit 2
- ProfileKit 2
Natspeak.exe process still running even after shutting down application.
The Dragon recognizer maintains a resource queue of all application resources (API, recognition, dialog, etc. object instances) and assumes the application is still running if all its resources have not been released regardless if the application is running or not. The recognition result callback objects were destroyed, but not released in the way the dropped them from Dragon's resource queue.
Fixed in SpeechKit 5 build 22.214.171.124 (Win32). Fixed in SpeechKit 4 build 126.96.36.199. Fixed in GrammarKit 2 build 188.8.131.52. Fixed in ProfileKit 2 build 184.108.40.206.
