Re: Release of add-on applicationDictionary

Maybe not...

By instance, I have a profile for all mail programs... If I put something in a specific dictionary for that profileit will be applied to all mail programs and that can be undesirable....

Where is the difference in practice for the enduser? Having this in profiles is even more confortable because you don‘t need additional dialogs or interfaces.

The most prominent time the two concepts will be the same is if an app-specific configuration profile is active. At other times, these concepts are different.

Sorry Joseph and Adriani, but you are wrong...


#11005 is:

Add profile specific speech dictionaries


This one is for application specific dictionary...


Can be the same thing in some cases, but also can be different...

There were discussions on GitHub about it and there was a talk about producing a pull request for inclusion in NVDA. At the moment NVDA developers are focusing on pull request backlog.

Hello friends!


Application Dictionary
• Authors: Ricardo M. Leonarczyk and Rui Fontes
• Version: 1.3
• Download stable version
• Compatibility: NVDA: 2019.1 to 2020.1



This simple add-on makes possible to create application-specific dictionaries for NVDA.
To use the add-on, just go to the application for wich you want a dictionary for, and press NVDA+shift+p. The normal NVDA dictionary dialog will open for you to add entries valid only for the active application (the application name should appear in the dialog title). The default add-on shortcut can be changed through NVDA's input gestures dialog: under configuration node, expand the node that says "Shows the application-specific dictionary dialog".

"NVDA+Shift+p": Shows the application-specific dictionary dialog
