    when checking out some M3/G6 Real software downloads, i notice that with PDADS there is an "Optional" "pda.dat" file.

    does anyone know what this dat does, (its over 40 Megabytes [​IMG])

    I saw somewhere on a French DS forum that PDA.DAT is a 'speech file for dictionary'.

    To clarify, I believe it is a dictionary db file containing dictionary words.

    It is NOT required to use PDA-DS. It is optional.

    the question is how do you use it?

    is there a dictionary in the pda?

    There is a TXT file with pda.dat. It tells you to copy it into a directory underneath your PDADS directory. It should just work.

    I haven't used it myself, but will try to give it a shot this weekend.
