"Great dictionary, though it could expand"

February 11, 2007  |  By nvs_victor

 |  Version: Pardon 1.6

Pros

Free, quick and requires little computer power.

Cons

No English pronunciation guide as this is important, and no audio pronunciations. Perhaps with some extra funds, they can give add this. Though it does its purpose.

"ok for simple use"

 |  Version: Pardon 1.6

Summary

This program is very helpful when you just can't remember that word, because it is quick and easy. However, if you are planning any type of composition or serious use of the language you'd better have a paper dictionary on hand. This program has limited, one-word definitions that may or may not be quite accurate, and it doesn't give you gender at all. I noticed a few minor imperfections in accents and spelling--not a big deal, but enough to make me wonder how much I can trust this dictionary. I always begin writing using this dictionary as a reference, but I inevitably dig out my paper dictionary for a comprehensive and exact definition of what I'm looking for. I use it mostly for when I should know the word but just need a hint. So, if you're just looking for quick definitions, this is a great tool, but don't rely heavily on it for serious stuff.

"sucks big time"

 |  Version: Pardon 1.6

Summary

This dictionary sucks, if you want other languages it directs you to their web site. Bad piece of software and what the hell is up with the teddy bear.

The makers are a bunch of crooked cowards if you ask me.

"Great piece of software!"

July 22, 2003

 |  Version: Pardon 1.6

Summary

This dictionary works much better than the ones I payed for. Searching for words is so easy, there are links to synonyms. Also word functions and contexts are defined with different colors, which makes perception so easy at first sight. I don't use the browser function, and I think it is not necessary. Also, you can use it as a side bar, which makes its use very convenient. The only thing I would like to have is that the program window might have been transparent. I leave it on the side all the time, so it blocks a part of my desktop.
