Using a visual dictionary
What is this feature?
A visual dictionary (or picture dictionary) contains pictograms, photos, or drawings to provide a visual representation of a word.
How do I use it?
A visual dictionary offers the user an index by theme or topic that connects to labeled images. This can be as simple as labelling the fruits in a bowl to an expanded view of a car engine with all the parts labeled.
How does it help?
A user can find the right word at a glance by referring to a visual dictionary. They may also discover other words by association within the theme.
