Longman English Dictionary Browser 2.0.3

Easily browse Longman English Dictionary Online.
Having a dictionary on hand is always helpful as we often encounter words we are not familiar with or that we are not sure of their meaning. Longman English Dictionary Browser is a small app that can help you with this issue.

The app has a simple interface that is quite easy to figure out, regardless if you have any previous experience with this sort of programs.

When the program is launched, it stays in the task tray and some of its features can be accessed through the content menu. Thus, whenever you want to view the definition of a certain word, you must simply select the word with the help of the mouse pointer and press a key combination, namely Control + Shift +D.

A small window appears on the screen, displaying numerous meanings for the word you’re searching for, including pictures, idioms, similar words and related topics. The words that appear in a different color can be clicked for further details.

Another available hotkey enables you to launch Google text-to-speech; this should help you pronounce the words correctly.

The program can be set to always be displayed on top of other frames and to run at Windows startup.

The bottom line is that Longman English Dictionary Browser is a nice program that can come in handy on a daily basis. Inexperienced users should find it easy to work with, thanks to the overall simplicity of the task.
