To make this website easier to read, we allow you to search for a word in the Macmillan Online Dictionary simply by double-clicking on a word on the page.

When you double-click on a word, a window opens which lists the different ways a word is used. You can then choose the item which describes the way in which the word is used in the sentence you are reading, or you can click on other items to understand more about how the other ways in which the word can be used.

If you want to look up words not on this website, you can do this at Macmillan Dictionaries Online.

Screen Reader

For blind and visually impaired users ADL SmartCare recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free “screen reader” which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice.

You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.

Click on the screen reader icon on the tool bar for the download link.
