how to make your own dictionary including database and search engine

 

Our app will help you create definitions and will store them in its database.  The app's search engine will enable you to look up the definitions you have added.  The look up may be done either by keying headwords into the search engine or by double clicking them in the index.

How to build your dictionary

First, open your Inductel Chrome book dictionary.  If you don't have one, get a free trial copy of an Inductel Dictionary which runs on web browsers.  That would be the Chromebook version.  So get it because you have to run it your browser.  It will run in any major browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Internet Explorer, or Opera.

After you have your dictionary up and running, open the Edit Entry item.

 

Pick a word you want to define and check to see if it is already in our main dictionary.  Here we tried to look up the word "Lorem" and found it is not in the dictionary.  OK.  We can now add its definition.
