How To Use

Step by guide to use Dictozo

A.  Installing the plugin

  1. Install the V5.0 version of Dictozo by clicking "Add to Chrome" button either from webstore or from homepage
  2. It will ask for following permissions, accept them

    NOTE: Don't worry about the permission saying " It can Read and change all your data on websites you visit" Its just Chrome's horrible way to tell users that plugin can add additional text to your webpage, which is necessary for FEATURE No. 4 to work. We are not stealing/modifying any of your personal data that is not linked to Dictozo anyway. Read our Privacy Policy for sake

  3. On successful install, you will receive a confirmation mail from Dictozo containing your Email and Password on the Email ID which you have signed in to chrome.
  4. Keep this info safe, as you have to enter these Email and Password while logging in to your dashboard.

B.  Searching for Translations and Definitions

    Dictozo provides you 5 different ways to perform a search.
  1. Direct Search - Just open the app, you will see a search input field. Enter the word to search and hit enter or submit button adjacent to input field
  2. In-Page Search - You can select a word whose meaning you want to look. Then right-click on it. You will see an option stating "Search yourword". Choose that option and a popup box with definition will appear on right side of the screen. You don't need to open the app
  3. Page Catch - This one is most convenient to use. Just select the word and open the app. You will see the definition and all other options you can perform.
  4. Google Catch - Try to find the meaning of any word on google, it will automatically reflect in the Dictozo app on opening.

    NOTE: Dictozo will able to take the only first word from Google's search input, so avoid writing sentences. E.g. "Define ersatz" displays the meaning of "Define" not of "ersatz".

  5. Double Click Magic - Inside the search results produced, if you Double Click on any word, Dictozo will perform a search query for that word too. So you don't have to type any word which is already in the definition.
