I am using josh’s 2019 in the latest update.
Therefore, when I go into the dictionary and select the sound it doesn’t show me the folder path.
So knowing that I’m using jars 2019 the latest build, How do I determine what that path is, whether it’s shared or users?

differ in respect to what version of JAWS you're using.

and I think you can just add the sounds you want to use as long as
they are in the .wav format. and modifying existing ones shouldn't
present a problem.

Hey guys:

How does one find the folder that stores the available sounds to
choose when adding a sound to a jaws dictionary entry?

I’d like to either add more sounds to the list of sounds available,

Alternatively, Go into that folder and modify a “wav” file to make a
better quality sound for the dictionary entery?

Please advise as you like.
