Re: Speech exception dictionary question

If the dictionary is really that simple, then two navy commands should make the changes.
1. gs/=/,/
This will change all first = signs to a comma.
2. gs/$/,,/
This will add two commas to the end of the line.

I expect there are ways to do this with notepad++ too, but I don't use it enough. If Windows 10 Linux mode actually has most of the Unix command lines, then you could put those two lines into a text file and then use
Sed -f myfile <WEDict > NVDAdic
Where myfile is the file with the two gs lines though you would actually want to remove the g at the beginning of the line.
WEdict is the Windows Eyes dictionary.
NVDAdict is the NVDA dictionary.

Note that all above statements are based on theory. I have not tried this.

I'm just now switching from Window-Eyes to NVDA and liking it pretty well thus far. I have hundreds of pronunciation exceptions in the WE exception dictionary file. Is there a way of transferring that information into NVDA?
