moderated Re: Where is the dictionary file?

Gene Warner

Hi Bill!

I wasn't idle, while restoring all of my application configuration files (.jcf) I found and remembered that the dictionaries are stored in .JDF files, so I got my dictionary back.

My other problem with Edge not working properly was apparently due to some component of JAWS that got corrupted that the repair didn't fix. I had to completely remove JAWS then reinstall it, remember to have the installer remove all the shared components as well as JAWS.

Thanks for the reply anyway.

Hi, Gene.
1. Open JAWS Menu with INSERT plus J.
2. Arrow down to Utilities sub menu and press ENTER.
3. Arrow down to Explore Utilities Folder and press ENTER.
4. Arrow down to Explore My Settings and press ENTER.
5. Paste any Dictionary Files you may have into this folder which is open, which contains all your settings files.

Hi everyone!
Does anyone know where JAWS stores theits dictionary file? Freedom
Scientific had me completely uninstall JAWS and now I find that it will
not import my settings backup files, so now I will have to restore some
of my settings files from my weekly backups.
