Editable IWB Dictionary (Beta testing)

download the Editable IWB DictionaryI am currently testing an editable version of the IWB dictionary. This means that the dictionary of words can be added to. This resource is in 'Beta'. This means that it may not be stable and may not work as expected.

It can be downloaded 'free of charge' from here.

Please unzip / extract this file after you have downloaded it. Please read the terms and conditions before using this resource.

To change the word list, edit a text file that sits in a folder alongside the program file for this resource. My thanks to Ted Burch (Maths Frame) for suggesting a far simpler way of doing this!
