A JAWS dictionary line has the
fields, in order: Actual word|Replacement Word|Language
(0x09-English)|Synthesizer|Voice|Language (0 is default)|Case sensitive (0 -
No, 1 -Yes)
For the JAWS dictionary, the fields themselves are DOT
enclosed/separated, UNLESS, the actual word starts with a dot, in which case

The NVDA dictionary file layout is

a separator before it. They are arranged as:
Matching word or regular
expression|Replacement|Case Sensitivity (0 - no, 1 - yes)|Type (2 - Whole
Word, 1 - Regular Expression, 0 - Anywhere)|Comment (All comments are
pre-pended with a #
For both dictionaries, there is a single entry per
line of the file.
