Re: Release of add-on applicationDictionary


You can back them up. They are specific files you can find and copy anywhare you want. Or you can do the easiest thing and back up all sorts of settings and the speech dictionaries by making a portable copy of NVDA from your installed one and having it include everything. I have almost never done this and others can explain just how you tell the portable version to keep all these things. But once you do, you can back up the portable version wherever you want. And you can use the portable version to install NVDA with everything you have in the portable version.

It also would be nice to be able to back up the dictionary files as well.

Looks good. I think it would be helpful, and relatively easy, to add an
"Application dictionary" option within the NVDA menu, within Settings ->
Speech dictionaries. The gesture is fine, but requires people to read
the docs before they can use it. Rather than it just showing up where
they expect it to.

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
