    Parallels Access is working wonderfully. Congratulations Parallels.
    Does anyone have an idea about how to use Access with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 12.5 running under Parallels Desktop for Mac and Windows 7? Dragon works fine under iPad control but it is picking up the sound off the Mac, not the iPad. Is there a configuration that allows the iPad mic to be the active input?

    I don't think Parallels Access has a Sound Input feature yet.

    It uses the "Parallels Virtual Audio Adapter" to transmit sound to the iPad. The adapter registers two 48kHz 16 bit stereo streams "Parallels Sound Input Stream" and "Parallels Sound Output Stream" which means it appears in both the Input and Output tabs of the Sound preferences panel. It also has Input and Output tabs in Audio MIDI Setup.app. However, it seems the Input channel is not taking any input from the iPad. It might just be a placeholder for a future feature.

    Thank you, joevt. I hope that Parallels adds that feature!
