Question: Dragon Dictate works in every app except iWork Pages

I have had an ongoing issue where Dragon Dictate stops working in iWork Pages. The Dragon Dictate floating window indicates that it is successfully transcribing my speech, but nothing appears in the Pages window. This does not seem to be a compatibility issue as Dragon Dictate functions in every other application (including iWork Numbers, iWork Keynote, TextEdit and Safari). Furthermore, Dragon Dictate will sometimes work in iWork Pages, buh then, inexplicably, stop working.

Has anyone else run into this issue? If so, have you found a workaround? I would normally post this in the nuance forums, but they seem to have been defunct for some time…😟

VIN, MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2010), macOS Sierra (10.12.5), null

Their Mac Support site is offline pending redesign. Your profile only shows Sierra 10.12.5. If true, there is available a Sierra 10.12.6 combo update and last month's macOS Sierra 2017-001 security update.

Nuance states Pages compatibility, but nothing specific, so you might contact them via email or phone, and determine what Pages version they are referring too. Do you have the last Dragon Professional Individual for Mac, v6 update from Nuance?
