    Maybe its in the manual but find the dictionaries where xlights.exe is installed. You can view the standard dictionary to see the format. Copy the user dictionary to your show folder and add the words with phoneme's to that. Or just use words that are close that are in the dictionary. I can't check but maybe "Paw rum bum bum bum" or "Paw rum dumb dumb dumb" would work. Should be pretty much the same mouth moves.

    And that's also a good way to add new words to the user dictionary. Find a similar word and copy it's phoneme's.
