Dragon Dictate software incorrectly capitalizes 'tiger, 'lion' and 'jaguar'

Dragon Dictate, the voice to typed word software that I often use, incorrectly capitalises tiger, lion and jaguar. These are three of the big, roaring cats. They should not be capitalised as they are ordinary nouns. I suspect that the software capitalises these words because they are often used by people in circumstances when the word could be capitalised such as a sports team.

To pick one at random: Melbourne Tigers, a Melbourne basketball team. The word 'tiger' should be capitalised when used in this way.

As for the jaguar (the cat) the word is capitalised when referring to the car brand. This is probably why Dragon Dictate, by default, capitalises it. It believes the word is more used to describe the car than the cat.

As a Dragon Dictate user you have to customise the software to rectify these defects.


P.S. please forgive the occasional typo. These articles are written at breakneck speed using Dragon Dictate. I have to prepare them in around 20 mins.
