Before you start using ViaVoice, type

  M-: (open-dribble-file "~/dribble")

Then try to reproduce the bug. Once the bug has been reproduced, type

  M-: (open-dribble-file nil)

Now look in the file "~/dribble", to see what keystrokes Emacs thinks
it got.

I have not tried such software, but the current CVS version has some
changes that were made for better compatibility with accessibility
software that might be relevant (the changes I'm thinking of affect
text->speech conversion rather than speech->text though).
