Talking Dictionary

 is a simple tool that can explain English words using the Microsoft Text-To-Speech engine. It has a built in dictionary of words. Each word is associated to one or more definitions and several synonyms.

If English is not your native language, you might have some trouble understanding the computer’s voice. I installed the program on Windows Vista Home Premium, and the only voice that is available is called Mary. ‘Talking Dictionary’ allows you to set the speed of this voice. It’s quite funny if you set Mary to speak fast.

Shortcut keys are provided for saying the word, the definitions, and the synonyms. There are also shortcuts for going to the next or previous definition.
