How it Works

  • Scan a word from any printed text
  • See the various definitions, phrasal verbs and idioms of the word you scanned
  • See also the phonetics, etymology, alternative spellings, parts of speech, examples of usage, usage notes, derivations, labels, synonyms, etc
  • Choose from several display modes to see only the information you need



Q: Can I determine which elements I see on the display window?
A: Yes. You can choose between the Full and Reduced settings in the menu in order to set your QT according to your needs.

Q: Can I go directly to a cross reference or synonym from within a definition?
A: Yes. You can use the Highlight Mode in order to select a word from within a definition. Pressing Enter will display the definition of that word.

Q: Can I find phrasal verbs and idioms in the QT?
A: Yes. Each definition in the QT D-FINE is followed by phrasal verbs and idioms as well as etymologies, alternative spellings, examples of usage, usage notes, derivations, labels, synonyms, etc

Q: Does the QT switch itself off automatically if I forget to?
A: Yes, The QT has a built in automatic shut-off function which you can set from 15-240 seconds.

Q: Can I also use the QT to scan words hyphenated at the end of a line?
A: Yes. The QT has a special function that allows you to scan the first half of a divided word, followed by the second half on the next line. It then reads these two halves as one whole word.

Q: Does the QT read white on black text too (inverted text)?
A: Yes. One click on the left arrow button adjusts the QT to reading light text on a dark background.

Q: I am left-handed, Do I have to scan like a right-handed person?
A: No. You adjust the QT very simply for left-handed use.

Q: Can I translate words printed in very large fonts?
A: Yes. You can use the Opticard to enter words that are too large to scan, such as words appearing on billboards, signposts, etc.

Q: Does the QT translate English slang expressions too?
A: Yes. The QT contains more than 15,000 expressions and idioms in English, including a large selection of up-to-date slang usages.

Q: What is the advantage of using the QT rather than my familiar printed dictionary?
A: The QT allows you to look up the translation of a word without having to put down your book or newspaper. In addition, it presents you with the translation within seconds.
