Re: Easier way to edit exception dictionary?
Marcio, Here's Giles reply reposted as you requested:toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The easiest way I've found to edit or delete words in a dictionary
with many entries is to go to AppDate/Roaming/NVDA/speechDicts and
then open either the default.dic file or a dictionary in one of the
voiceDicts folder in a text editor like Notepad where you can use the
normal search methods to find the word, or part of a word, pattern or
In the file the flag for whether it is case sensative is 1 for true
and 0 for false. The second number is the flag for whether it is
anywehre, whole word only or a regular expression ... anywehre is 0,
regular expression is 1 and whole word is 2.
For example, a entry I added the other day was to get the word dynasty
to be pronounced the UK way rather than the American way. This is the
line of the default.dic file ... in case it doesn't show up here I'll
indicate the tab character with [tab] dynasty[tab]dinasty[tab]0[tab]0
If you make edits to a dictionary file then you have to re-start NVDA
for the dictionary edits to take effect, but it is often far easier
doing it that way than trying to find the word you want to edit in
the NVDA dictionary manager.
Hope you find this useful :)
