Random sentences appearing in Word document
Right I've got a real odd problem here.
I got called through to a room where one of the kids was using Word 2003. She had just started the document and words were appearing on the document. It kinda doesn't make sense but it is english and not just a bunch of random words.
The machines are all proxy filtered out on to the internet and there's an amazingly strict firewall ruleset for the pupil machines.
The machine has Symantec Endpoint Security on it with all the up to date definitions. There's nothing spooky in the task or process list either.
There were no macro's on the document and it was created whilst in the centre not at home.
Attached is the document, it's been scanned today with Endpoint Security.
Here is the text:
U.S. and China and Taiwan have

would still be suspicious of a macro virus or something? maybe use a second scanner... (I guess user's beware with the attachment).
If it was less text I would suspect auto correct, have you checked this? Have you confiremd that it isn't other students messing around?

Heh, anyone remember the Wazzu virus ?
That did something very similar, marvellous bit of coding for the time....

Not some interference from speech to text is it?
I had this once and had to disable it

2nd that notion. However the users were using a laptop with a built in mic.

Hmm, that might be an idea, the machine was an iMac so it has an internal microphone...
Will go and check!

I think you might have hit the nail on the head there.
I've just logged on as the pupil and opened word and started speech to text. I noticed a tool bar down on the task bar which is the dictation toolbar and when i spoke the dots came up on the screen as the computer was processing my voice.
Yep, definitely one for the book! Speech to text!
