The Oxford Dictionary of English has been the standard in English dictionaries for quite some time. It is used widely around the world and offers comprehensible definitions for almost every word. The Oxford Dictionary of English software is great for those who want to take Oxford with them no matter where they are headed.

Oxford Dictionary of English has both a free version and a paid version of the software. While the free version is not as complete as the paid version, it is quite robust in its entries. It has over three hundred and fifty thousand detailed definitions. These can be found by using the search bar which is clearly marked at the top of the page.

Oxford Dictionary of English works just like the hard copy, even mimicking the style of a written book. All of the links are clickable allowing for users to easily jump in-between different words. Each of the entries also has the correct pronunciation of the word which is great for both English learners and native speakers. Users can easily save a definition at the top of the page by clicking the star icon.

Oxford Dictionary of English is now being offered as a free download for both Windows and Mac operating systems. This dictionary is compatible with mobile Windows devices and personal computers. It is created with the Windows 10 operating system in mind.

This is a great tool for schools or for those who do not have a readily available internet connection. The very stripped down interface is distraction free, unlike many of the online dictionaries that are currently offered. No matter the computer skill level, the Oxford English Dictionary is incredibly easy to use and has a truly helpful user interface.
