Being a software-based dictionary, WordWeb has the main advantage of allowing you not to browse a thick book for a word. Instead, immediate access to the definition is provided. Fortunately, the application allows using hotkeys to search for a word and it even has OCR support. Besides, you can ask the program to pick up a random word, which you can use to expand your vocabulary.

WordWeb can not only show definitions but also search for anagrams and display other related words, such as synonyms, antonyms, word class, etc. In addition, you can have the phonetic transcription along with the audio pronunciation of a given word. Although the application works well when you’re offline, it can also help you benefit from such online references as Wiktionary and Wikipedia. Furthermore, you can download other resources to make them available even when there’s no Internet connection available.

The bottom line is that WordWeb is an excellent dictionary. However, you should know that there are more tools of this type out there. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to consider your specific needs before you decide to purchase any of them.

atirrasheedhashmi I have been using it for two years. I tried many dictionary, but no dictionary is better than this one. It helps to find word/synonyms/antonyms and also related words, no need to search for word meanings. Just search a word, press "Enter" and it will give the best result.

Guest #104549330 This program works flawlessly and I've been using it more than ten years. It is one of the best programs I have on my computer. If the word isn't in the data base it will take you to the Internet do an extended search!
