New Interlinking technology helps you find words you don't know
The English Talking Dictionary, first and foremost, is a comprehensive dictionary. It is, however, much more than a dictionary. The English Talking Dictionary speaks. It reads the definition of a word aloud. The user can hear the word used in a sentence. It has a fully integrated thesaurus for referencing synonyms and antonyms of all words. It includes slang jargon and historical figures. It contains over 250 000 words and allows the reader to look up a word without knowing exactly how it is spelled. It is also possible to search for words by concept.

How does this compare?
How does this compare to a standard dictionary? Well, a standard desktop dictionary contains about 110,000 words with definitions and is about 800 pages. Can your desktop dictionary read the definition to you? Can you make your dictionary display large print? Does your dictionary provide you with a list of synonyms for the word you are looking for? Does your dictionary tell you if the word you are looking for is misspelled and provide you with the correct spelling? If the answer is “NO” to any of these questions, you will immediately realize the power of the English Talking Dictionary.
With the ETD, you don’t need to know the correct spelling of a word. If you can get close to spelling a word, it will ask you “Did You Mean?” and provide you with a list of potential words that similar in spelling. This list can be read to you to help you make your choice. Additionally, if you only know how to spell a portion of a word, the Power Search can help you find all words that contain a partial spelling.
“Recursive lookup” lets you find the definition of a term within a definition.
“Hot key lookup” lets you simply highlight a word in a document, web page or email and simply press a function key to automatically lookup the definition without interrupting the flow of your reading.
