    Specific Audio Device for Playback from Particular Program


    I use Dragon Medical Practice Edition to dictate charts at work. Frequently I will play music in the background. Windows 10 defaults to using my Dell's built-in speakers.

    When I make dictation corrections, Dragon is set to play the audio snippet of what I dictated that wasn't transcribed correctly. I would like this audio to playback through my Philips SpeechMike SMP3700.

    Is there a way to set this so Dragon plays audio through the SpeechMike, but all other audio goes through the Realtek audio/laptop's internal speakers?

    Something like this...

    Options are very limited.

    Here's a recent MS answer.

    If a specific program was run or something else detectable happened when your program played back sound, it might be possible to write a script monitoring it to change the default playback device - e.g. Autohotkey. But that would take some research.

    Unless you can find a 3rd party program to do what you want, you are stuck with what Windows allows - One playback device.

    Media players like MPC or VLC let you pick the default output device, but for something system wide, check:
