From the top of the image. Two rows of five green rounded squares, each shaded from dark green on the left, to a paler green to the right of each rounded square. They are followed by a row of one slightly rectangular shape with the same shading and colours, a long rectangular shape then the same slightly rectangular block again so to form an impression of a keyboard. Beneath that in a large font and in capital letters is the word lime. On the next line (bottom of image) is the word technology and ltd, the abbreviation of limited. This row has smaller text. End of description.

Easily accessed via the Alinea Suite PDF reading, and word prediction applications, the dictionary application includes the:

Harper Collins English, US English, German, and French. Their is also a picture dictionary that can be edited, an invaluable tool for teachers and parents.

To demonstrate the dictionary, we have used two homophones – flower and flour. Sounding the same, but having a different meaning and a different spelling, homophones can pose difficulty for many dyslexic and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learners.  

 Using one of the text-to-speech voices included with Alinea Suite’s Windows application, the below videos show Alinea’s Harper Colins dictionary application giving the definition of flower, then flower.   


Now for the word flour….

For those requiring further support, the picture dictionary is also available, and can be edited via Alinea’s glossary.

To demonstrate this, I edited the glossary’s entry for the word flour as there was no picture dictionary entry.  

The dictionary definition for the word flour which is spelled f l o u r. The image button has been clicked and there is a picture of two hands cupped together holding white flour. The hands are poised over a stainless steel mixing bowl full of white flour. End of description.
