moderated Re: Parameter For Pronunciations Of Syllables

One example of doing this is when I labeled the graphic symbols which will show up as numbered graphics, in Outlook Express, like graphic 520 would be unred message.
But if I wrote it like unread message, , Jaws says:
un reed message.
So I spell read in the graphic label as unred, like the color.
The same can be done in dictionary manager.
But Jaws has no way of knowing when to say a word correctly as far as I know, like when we want the word live to sound like liv.
Or if we want liv to sound like lyve.

The only way I know to do this with JAWS is to mess with spaces and syllables to try to force something resembling the pronunciation you want.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

Out of curiosity, does anybody know if there's a parameter you can enter within Dictionary Manager, or somewhere within JAWS, to denote the accurate pronunciation of stressed versus unstressed syllables in a given word? I know in the Microsoft SAPI's speech markup language, there are parameters for typing pronunciations of Primary Stress syllables (1) and Secondary Stress syllables (2), as well as syllabic markers (-), and that each letter or letter combination is separated by a space. For example, if there are two pronunciations of a word, like "Progress". "p r ax - g r eh s 1" or "p r aa 1 - g r eh s". How would I simulate this with JAWS?
