It would seem that only wav files are allowed as dictionary sounds, but when you try to import a sound it lists all sound files - on my PC, I could tell no difference between this and all filetypes! If you choose a file that isn't a wav, when it is copied to the JAWS folder it is renamed as a wav file, but this won't play when you try it. And if you rename it manually from a wav back to its real filetype, it disappears from the list of available sounds. I couldn't find anything about this in the help files.

I don't use that feature, but all of the sounds are wav files so I assume that anything you wanted to use should also be a wav file.
Q: How many Bush administration officials does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. There is no shortage of filament. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?

Subject: Dictionary Manager Sounds
Hi Friends, I'd like to add a sound to the Jaws dictionary manager sounds. I've tried to use the import, export option and get the sound I'd like to add to the available sound options, but after adding them when I try to use them ( the ones I have added ) they don't work. The sounds that come with Jaws, how ever, do work. Is there some thing I'm not doing right, such as some thing with the configuration manager or are there only certain sounds like .wav or .MP3 sounds that work. Any help that you can offer in getting my own sounds into the dictionary manager sounds would be greatly appreciated. Brian
