Do you all realize that Mac OS X comes with an Oxford American English Dictionary widget?

widget has nice features and I have been looking for something that would define and correct, but it is diminished by how slow it is. It takes a long time to look up a word, then it asks for what kind (noun, adj., etc.) which is good, but then it takes longer to look it up further. I will stick with apples version until this is improved

Hi CMUVIOLIN, Thank you for this useful review. No doubt, it is quite slow. I just add "list related words" as an option. Please download it again. I should disable "list related words". :) Best, Sam

I was looking for a simple free way of looking for the definitions or spellings of words. Fairly straightforward really and this more than fits the bill. The widget installs very much like other widgets, by clicking the installer it goes about its business and then loads it up and asks if you want to keep it. The interface is simple and unconfusing with the logo, a text entry box and a display window. The display window has adjustable font size which is a nice feature, but I was very surprised to see the option to save prononciations (!) to iTunes. Rightly enough, look up a word and it will offer you a pronunciation. The voice is clear enough to be relavent to me (English) althugh the whole thing is clearly a US thing, which is something you accept. A simple test - entering colour in shows that words like this are included as 'british variant's' (!!) but at least they are there. :-) This little fella has proved an invaluable little tool for me as a dyslexic heavy computer user. Well done and thanks....now to try the only button I havent pressed yet - 'donate' :-)
