Re: a Jaws dictionary question

Hi Dave,
Thanks I did that yesterday and it did finally work.  At first I did it 
while just having the web page loaded, but I noticed that although the names 
had changed when I looked at the different tables and who was playing they 
were still the same when I actually sat down at a table with someone that I 
had changed the name for, so while playing I had time to go into the 
dictionary and make the change there and then it worked.

Thanks again.
Troy

Hello Troy,

If you want JAWS to use your words when you are playing the games, you need
to make the dictionary changes while you have the appropriate game running.
This means that you should do the following to make it easy for you to make
the changes.

1.  open the game where you want JAWS to use your settings.  I suggest the
practice game where you play the bots because those games allow you the
necessary time to do this.
2.  While in the game window, open the Dictionary Manager.
3.  Press the Add button and make a change, repeating the Add procedure for
every change you want to make.
4.  When you are done, close the Dictionary Manager and choose "Yes" when
asked if you want to save changes.

Give that a try and see if things don't work out better for you.

Regards,

Dave
