text editor

I am trying to use some voice recognition software WITH AUTOCAD 2000.
It works, more than just sort of, but less than perfect. Dragon
Naturally Speaking.
The problem is autocad's text editor. It does TOO MUCH, like when it wants to stack fractions. Naturally Speaking wants to listen for commands during dictation. The two don't play well together all the time.
I reset MTEXTED to use :lisp, like the help file suggests, but I get that tiny text box to edit in.
Is there a better way? Seems like I have seen that you could tell autocad to use notepad instead of the standard MTEXT editor. That would work. If I could substitute Dragon Pad instead, I might have the best set up.
Anybody know how to do this?
