This app provides you with a new dictionary on each month.
 
8.5.888 (See all)

This helpful Mac application provides you with a new dictionary at the beginning of every month. The program brings you a straightforward interface, has a built-in text-to-speech utility, and gives you access to a very efficient search tool that helps you immediately find words within the offered dictionary.

This month's offer includes an English pronunciation dictionary that teaches you how to articulate words with British or US accent. The app gives you access to a long list of words, allows you to change font size if necessary, and lets you print term pronunciation info directly from its interface.

Furthermore, this utility also offers you an easy way to find frequently searched words (you can add terms to a Favorites list). You simply click the star-shaped button from the top of the main window and the term you're currently on it's immediately added to your Favorites list.

Another good aspect about this program is that it provides you with a virtual keyboard utility. This tool might come in handy to people who prefer writing on their Macs by using the mouse.

All in all, Cambridge Dictionaries proves to be a reliable solution when it comes to learning a language on your Mac. The app is simple to use, offers plenty of useful features, and brings a very comprehensive help guide.
