Re: dictionary?


Marquette, Ed <Ed.Marquette@...>
 

Daniel:
If you play with it for a while and realize how it formats things, www.dictionary.com isn't bad. There is both a dictionary and a thesaurus. The dictionary is way better than the dictionary available with Research It.
A few hints:
1. Use the JAWS bookmark feature to identify important links you will use frequently.
2. Remember that, despite the availability of the search box, skip it initially and hit either Dictionary or Thesaurus first. Then, fill in the word in the edit box.
3. The results you are looking for will be in a table, so hit "t" after you've run the search.
4. The search button is the first button after the edit box. It isn't labeled.
Keep these in mind, and you'll do fine. It is a very powerful product (and it is free). There is just lots of clutter.

Does anyone know if there are any dictionary programs accesable with jaws.
I'll probably be needing one for my English class this year. \
