    Hey guys,

    Can anyone please suggest me a good and extensive Talking Dictionary ?

    I could see couple of them on warez but i wasnt sure which one to get. May be someone who has used it can give better insight.

    Also which is the best non-talking dictionary..?

    Thanx

    I use the Concise Oxford for day to day use.

    It's the "non-talking" one.

    Even i had too, but the explanations are too concise as the name of the dictionary. I was looking for one which has some sentences and different contexts too.

    Also pronounciation is bit of a problem for new words thats why talking

    I'll let them know for the update. They can make them just a wee bit more comprehensive.

    But the problem is i dont have 24x7 access to Internet
