Version 7 is mainly a content upgrade, with revised definition and sound database, but also has significantly updated one-click support for latest browsers and 64-bit programs.
Changes in this version include:
- New and revised definitions and related words
- Updated audio pronunciations
- Improved one-click integration with other programs
- Better one-click 64-bit and Windows 8 program support
- Keyboard hotkeys for Bookmark menu items
- Auto-detect support for latest 3-rd party Concise Oxford and Merriam-Webster
Feature changes since version 5 include:
WordWeb Pro now comes with 70 000 professionally-recorded audio pronunciations. These include both American and British variants (your language settings determine which show). The text pronunciations have also been completely revised, and now include syllable information.
More word links
Words now show derived forms underneath the definitions, and there are new links between often-confused words. New "On Topic" links list words related to particular topics (e.g. under statistics you see distribution, covariance, etc.)
Add extra optional dictionaries
You can now purchase additional dictionaries, displayed on separate tabs for easy access like the web references.
Import and Export definitions
You can now import and export both custom definitions and custom glossaries from tab or comma-separated text files. There's improved support for shared databases, and a feature to remove sets of entries (e.g. to revert an import).
The database has been extensively revised, including thousands of new definitions and synonyms, as well as many clarifications and improvements in core senses. There are also over 20 000 new example sentences.
Glossaries and custom definitions now fully support unicode, so you can use almost any language. You can edit the order of the web and other reference tabs, and there's an option to pre-load web references to make them load faster. Support for shared databases is improved, with new support for shared custom definitions as well as glossaries.
