The SR-G9001 Digital Dictionary, Your Computer’s Best Friend

Here’s an interesting Japanese compact dictionary, SII’s SR-G9001. It’s your typical black and white ( 5.2” VGA screen) dictionary with many different volumes (30 in total) ranging from standard, to language and technical.

Fairly normal so far, BUT there’s a catch, it can be linked to a PC, and proprietary software allows access its data base and word search directly from a PC (PC only). I like the idea of a connected dictionary and would like to see other manufacturers follow this example.

    There’s no reason why a PC should require what is effectively a dongle to perform a dictionary search, they should let you install it from a CD.

    Software dictionaries are very very useful and make the boundaries between study and curiousity that much thinner. You can get the major Kenkyusha dictionaries in one format here:

      It is an electronic dictionary that has a feature that allows it to share its content with a computer. There is no need to purchase the 30 different content independently, and then install them on a computer. Only the drivers needs to be installed.

      Electronic dictionaries are more versatile than software dictionaries, as they are current models (including this one) are designed to allow the user to easily switch between different dictionaries.

      With the content with electronic dictionaries they are actually cheaper, some even fit in your pocket. Turning on a computer to access a dictionary sounds that that simple.

      Various manufactures like Sii, Casio, and Canon have a wide range of electronic dictionaries. The best study aid is an electronic dictionary, and with the ability to share the content with computers they have gotten better.
