Accelerators
How can I add an accelarator to open Mirrriam Webster dictionary into
"Mirriam-Webster Pronunciation" page so I can get the right pronunciation
for the word I want

exemple: selected word = "world"
http://www.merriam-webster.com/cgi-b...d001.wav=world

Thank you,

Aurora

First step would be to see if someone has already done this...

Right-click, All Accelerators, Find More Accelerators

E.g. perhaps you could find some clues about how to do it
from one of the examples here:

http://www.ieaddons.com/en/dictionaries/


Then go to Merriam-Webster Help pages.
Audio Pronunciations FAQ. (Looks dated. Mentions Netscape but
no mention of IE or Firefox.) So, look for help here:

http://www.merriam-webster.com/help/...tm#techsupport


Another alternative would be to create an Address bar keyword shortcut
(aka "Search Prefix"). E.g. XP users can use TweakUI to do that.
Simply decide on a simple keyword name and then make a template
out of your sample URL.

So, perhaps:

Prefix: pronounce
URL: http://www.merriam-webster.com/cgi-b...orld001.wav=%s
