When the NATO alphabet was dropped, we tried all sorts of vocabulary solutions. None of them worked. The suggestions above ("spell..." or Lunis's neat command) are the way to go.

Just to show that we did put in time: we created a list with written/spoken forms for the whole alphabet, including variations (German has a few), set the properties to "no space before" resp. "no space after" and tested the hell out of it. Half of the time, the actual word would be given preference over the letter; with the rest, Dragon never got the spacing quite right. Had it worked, we would have sold it. Since it didn't, we advise users to either type the odd name, or use the "Spell..." command.

Hope that helps, Stephan
