Re: NVDA Speech Dictionaries - How are they stored?

Tyler Spivey

They're just files under %appdata%\nvda\speechDicts.
You can already copy them around.

This is a direct spin-off of the NVDA & IPA topic.   Obviously, if anyone has created any sort of speech dictionary, that data has to be held somewhere, and I suspect it's not internally but in file somewhere, probably a separate one for the default, voice, and temporary dictionaries.
As it can be a lot of work to create elaborate ones, it would be really handy to be able to share those upon occasion.   It would be really nice were NVDA to have an Import/Export function for each, but depending on exactly how and where they're stored, this may be simple to do "by hand" if necessary.
Is it possible to take, for instance, you existing default dictionary and append the contents of someone else's to that (or load it in to the voice or temporary dictionaries) with relative ease?
If not, consideration of an Import/Export Dictionary function would be a very good idea.
