Usually, Marty, if you look
at the spelling of people's names, you can figure out that
JAWS is mispronouncing the name. Usually I look at the
spelling of names, even when I know JAWS is not
mispronouncing them, because, names may be spelled
differently, and I don't want to type someone's name
incorrectly. For example, Chris may be spelled with a ch,
a K, or even just with a C.
Have you ever been embarrassed by
mispronouncing someone's name, because you said it the way
JAWS said it and it was dreadfully wrong? I have and it's
not fun. I just blame it on JAWS and laugh it off most of

the dice as far as what was being pronounced correctly
now no longer being so.
That's one of the things I like about NVDA dictionary
handling. Having a dictionary that is applied no matter
the synth (default dictionary), versus to a given synth
(voice dictionary), versus temporary for playing around
before assigning something permanently to one of the
other two or for really transient one-time use.
