Yes. If you have a synth-specific dictionary, place the line I

NVDA will only use this default.dic file if there is no
synth specific .dic file available for the synth you have
configured for use with the log-on/secure screens. I.E if
you have a synth specific .dic file in your user settings

facility in the General settings dialog.
No. The default dictionary is the
file located at C:\Program Files (x86)\nvda\builtin.dic,
which should not be modified. In the case of my
instructions, the word "default" in the file name simply
refers to the dictionary that will be used by all
synthesizers installed in the configuration used on the
logon screen and other secure screens.
