Changing pronunciation

Cearbhall O'Meadhra



Many Irish names are mispronounced by speech synthesisers. I am using Eloquence with NVDA 2017.4, Windows 10   and a name such as Senan should be pronounced sennan. Or Micheál should be pronounced mee-hawl. I placed this in the default dictionary   of NVDA and pressed OK to confirm it but the pronunciation remains the same and is incorrect! I then entered it into the Voice dictionary thinking that might do the trick. Again, it failed to make any change! Finally, I added the rule to the temporary dictionary and Bingo! It worked!


Can anyone tell me why the Default and Voice dictionaries do not work? Is there any setting that I should look at?


All the best,
