Dragon NaturallySpeaking success

Words that Dragon NaturallySpeaking understands when I speak them, with no prior training:
  1. Boris Nemtsov (Soviet dissident)
  2. myofascial release
  3. Brechtian
  4. flibbertigibbet

Words that it does not have in its dictionary:

  1. compendium
  2. papal

Dragon sometimes uses context well, sometimes not so well:

He was the scion of a wealthy family [good]

As well as red green blue, another prominent color scheme is magenta, yellow, black, cyan [good]

She rejected cobalt and chose Psion instead for the sky [um, what?!]

But where it all falls apart is its understanding of single syllable words that stand apart from context. Trying to get it to apply caps can give me "Cast hello", "Caps hello", "HELLO", "H ello"...
