Hello Kerry.

To revert back to the factory default dictionary file open the start menu,
programs, the Jaws group you are interested in changing, explore jaws,
explore my settings.  This will open your personal settings folder where you
can look for default.JDF.  Once you have this file highlighted you can
delete the file.  Jaws for Windows will no longer see this file in your
personal settings folder so it will use the copy from within the shared
settings folder.  All of this assumes that you were smart and did not
overwrite the copy that was in the shared settings directory.  By default
the dictionary manager will first check and see if there is a file in the
personal settings folder and if there is not a file in the personal settings
folder it will read from the file from the shared settings folder.  Once the
changes are made it will write the modified file to your personal settings

I hope this helps.

Hi All,
    I was wondering if there is a way to restore the original dictionary
manager settings.  I changed something and now want to change it back and
can't remember what the original entry was.  Thanks for any help.
