Quite clearly, the OP asked for a vocabulary solution, when everyone keeps responding by offering command solutions. Is this really just an attention span problem, or what else is going on around here?


To the OP:


That particular set of vocabulary probably doesn't exist, so you would have to roll your own. Whether or not such a type of vocabulary would be useful or not, practically, would be up for grabs. I would suggest starting with a small set, containing such common words as "Mike", for instance.




WowWee!  Agent Smithie is krankee!  I might be a tad irascible myself this weekend while missing an hour of zee, thanks to DST!  But day-light saving in Deutschland is not until Mar 28th! 


I thought Alan mentioned that these NATO phonetics are "built-in" already.


In fact they are built even right into my "monkey Dragon".  We don't have "press" or "type".  But if I say "spell out alpha bravo charlie" in "Dragon Medical Embedded" - out comes "abc" ...


Of course, to avoid saying "press/type/spell out", then words like "uniform" in spoken form would always come out as "u", which I personally cannot wrap my head around (more than "attention span" I think) because words like "uniform" are in common usage. 

If OP really wishes to go the shortest route (after she clarified following Alan's post), perhaps she is better off adopting a "non-NATO" set of custom alphabets by training words such as "U-Boat" to stand in for "u".
