- Very easy and intuitive to use, as soon as you install the application, you can start using it without registration or registration.
- Allows you to save your "favorite" words for quick access to them
- It is very useful for someone who is learning
- It would be essential to expand the vocabulary with verbs and words more common for the person who uses it.
- Incorporate categories to make the search faster.
Design and manufacturing:
In relation to the design of the application, we highlight that in its development, utility in the design and the simplicity to install and start it up: it is not necessary to register or register.
To install it, we only have to access the Android Play Store, search for DILSE and download it from there. The application was developed by Fundación Vodafone Spain in 2014 and has more than 10.000 downloads.
Word download screen
Once downloaded, the application icon will appear in the menu and we can start using it.
The technical support offered by the Vodafone Foundation is through your email firstname.lastname@example.org and as a complement to the improvement of the application from the CNSE website from where DILSE is advertised, a valuation questionnaire is offered: http://www.fundacioncnse.org/tesorolse/cuestionario/cuestionario.html
The initial screen of the application shows the list of words available in the dictionary alphabetically. The list can be scrolled up and down the menu via the swipe of the finger or with a push button.
Dictionary of words
The application also has a side menu, from which you can directly access the words of a specific letter.
List of words with direct access by letter
An appreciable issue, it seemed to us to be able to identify the most common words, and include them in a list of "Favorites", to allow more agile access to them:
Image of words "Favorites"
The operation of the application is very simple, once the word has been selected, the screen opens where the video is shown where it is interpreted in LSE and the textual definition:
Video in LSE and textual description of the word
The application developer, Fundación Vodafone Spain, has numerous accessible applications that are intended to be a quick and easy help for people with disabilities or the elderly, on its website you have access to them: http://www.fundacionvodafone.es/apps-accesibles
The operation of the application is fast and stable. You need to be connected to the Internet to view the video shown on LSE.
It can be installed on Android devices and works with OS versions 2.2 and later.
Vodafone Spain Foundation has put special focus on this aspect, offering an inclusive application for deaf people and people with different technical abilities. The potential user of the DILSE application that we value from Orientatech, is a person in the learning phase of the LSE or, a signatory who needs a dictionary such as that of the Royal Spanish Academy, with access to definitions in Spanish Sign Language.
