Thanks. That gives me hope that it might work on my Blue & White G3 that
should be ariving next month.

Some things that have helped the stablity of PowerSecretary for me:

Turn off QuickTime, this also disables Sherlock :-(

Turn off PlainTalk, it's on the web site, and did seem more stable

Avoid using the command/control features (selecting menus, and pushing
buttons). These usually work, but can lock up PowerSecretary.  Using
alternate applescript commands for these helps.

1. PowerSecretary/VoiceNavigator info?

I'm researching voice-recognition software for Macs and have read about
PowerSecretary from Articulate Systems, based on technology from the
VoiceNavigator input products. Does anyone have a contact phone number
and/or address for Articulate Systems of Woburn, MA? I'd appreciate any

Thanks in advance,
