Re: Jaws Dictionary


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Just on "this Website" is the problem. I too would be interested in using the JAWS dictionary either on a specific Website or "on demand."
Theoretically, one could create a "specialized" dictionary, name it something unique, and then "copy" it over the otherwise applicable dictionary.
So, let's say one calls this "special" dictionary "special.dic". Presumably by using a batch file and the run dialog box, one could execute "special_dic.bat" and "resume_dic.bat" to copy over each other the respective dictionaries.
"Special_dic.bat" would have two commands as follows:
Copy c:\path\regularDictionary.dic c:\path\backupDictionary.dic
Copy c:\path\special.dic c:\path\regularDictionary.dic
Then, the resume_dictionary.bat would copy out the special dictionary and copy back the standard dictionary file.
It would be even better if this could all be done with a couple of scripts.
For me, this is primarily theoretical because I know neither the path nor the name of the standard default dictionary file.
If I did, I think I'd try something like the above. Here's why.
As much as I love Dragon Naturally Speaking, there are some errors it cannot and will not catch. So, I would create a "special" dictionary to catch common homonyms and sound-alike misses.
For instance, there are contexts where Dragon just does not know the difference between " two " spelled t w o and the word " too " spelled t o o.
I was burned the other day with "wants" spelled w a n t s and "once" spelled o n c e.
I have suggested to Freedom Scientific that a homonyms dictionary could be something that could be "turned" on in its Text Analyzer feature, but like all my suggestions to Freedom Scientific, ...

Hello,
I'm on a website and it is full of roman numerals and I'm wondering if there
is any way to make Jaws say the roman numerals as numbers just on this
website?
Thanks,

Brandon Keith Biggs
