Duplicating Dictionary

I am doing a technical presentation which is requiring me to add several words/symbols into the dictionary that is not getting pronounced correctly or pronounced at all.  Each time I open the dictionary to add a new word, it seems to be replicating the entire dictionary.   So now when I convert text to speech it is taking longer than 3 minutes to do it (yes I timed it).   I am telling it to save file and replace file.  When I go into the CSV file to open it, this is the message I get:  So now I have almost 300,000 rows in my dictionary even though I may have only added around 50 words.   How do I clean this up so that it does not take so long to generate my text to speech and how do I get it to stop duplicating?  I  have captivate 11.5.5.676.

I did figure out, if I find the CSV file, open it up in excel, then I can create a column that counts the identical words, there were 15,000+ of some identical words, then sort by the column where I counted it, then deleted all rows that had a count higher than 1, it fixed it, but it is still duplicating.  I now have a dictionary of only 28 words, so it looks like I only added about 20 words not 50.   

 

Anyone have advice on how to make it stop duplicating?
