Automated Dictionary

Every book in the system has an automated dictionary. To define a term, a reader simply needs to highlight a word.

Highlight some of these examples with your mouse to see the dictionary in action:


Definition popups disappear after 10 seconds. However, if you hover on the definition it will remain until you close it.

Learning New Words

In addition, the dictionary is a living, learning dictionary. So, if you highlight a term and do not see a result, the system will use artificial intelligence to try to figure out what it means behind the scenes.

If you try again in a few minutes, it should have a definition for you!
