Re: adding a sound in jaws dictionary

Van Lant, Robin

I have seen this setting in the Dictionary, but am curious as to ideas for when people are using this.  So far, the only dictionary entries I have made are when Vocalizer mis-pronounces a word.

Hi Mario & Michael,


Check out Richard's post.  It has the correct file path to where all the sounds are stored.

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

when choosing a sound as you refered to, there are 108 wav files to
choose from.
  the shared path that I have is "C:\ProgramData\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2018\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS\" but that folder gives me only
18 wav files.
and when I navigate to "C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2018\Settings\enu\Sounds" there are 0 files.
so at this point, I am somewhat confused where the rest of the sounds
are coming from.

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?

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

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, or,

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.
