Contextual pronunciation is a step above simple word-for-word pronunciation,
and thereby requires greater processing power.
I suppose you could set up your own rules in the JAWS dictionary if you
added word combinations like "will read", "I read very", "I read the", or
"go read". However there will still be many word pairs that are pronounced
differently on their context, as Peter points out.
I just tested this by adding the phrase "I read very" and set it to "I reed
very" and it now distinguishes that phrase correctly in the sentence: I read
very well. However if I have a sentence like I read very few books last
year (the past tense of "to read" then of course it's wrong once again.
So it's proves to be a real rat-hole when trying to use the JAWS dictionary
to set up contextual-based phrase pronunciations except in fairly simple and

One note on this, the realspeak voices sometimes get it right.
For instance the realspeak voices I have installed (fairly recent solo
direct if it matters) pronounces "It's time you go read the book"
correctly, but gets "Go read the book" wrong.
