Thank you Erdinc, great feedback. I will go over these suggestions for the next version. Starting a new thread is a good idea as well, I will do that as I start developing for the new version. I am actually stalling on my thesis work at school, and the sound files.

I saw the news article reading feature in Sabah, and they are using gvz. I contacted gvz multiple times with all the e-mail addresses they have on their website, but they keep ignoring me for some reason. I will try calling them to get more information and pricing. Do you have any information on this? A text-to-speech software like that can be used in so many places in both TurkishClass and TurkishDictionary.

8. I don't think 'alt + left click' is the best option for defalt settings. It intereferes with answers.com. Maybe 'shift + left click' is better as default. But being able to make changes on this is very good.

edit:
It turns out 'shift + left click' isn't a good idea. I use this frequently to open a link in new window so I can't use it as dictionary. Maybe 'ctrl + left click' could be default.



Actually shift+left click is commonly used for opening a link in a new window, and ctrl+left click for opening in a new tab. Right click combinations have the right click menu showing that I still can't get rid of. The best one looked like Alt+Left click.

Looks like there are not many people using the software yet, the logs show 78 different people today. By the way, it is submitted to download.com and appears as the second result when you search turkish dictionary.

Turkish will become more popular in the future. The dictionary software is a good idea for the Turks as well and it needs some marketing. Besides working on improvements and new features a little work on contents, some new design and functionality might be needed. The page designs aren't the best unfortunately.

Membership for the dictionary isn't a good idea I think. It looks like too much to ask to me.

I think the download.com link is very good. You should definately mention this everywhere. I would even remove any download from this website and put only the download.com link. It is more trusted.

Being among alexa top 100.000 and having a program on download.com are both very good things to mention but I see nothing about these on 'about us' menu. Everybody knows these websites. These should be on Turkishclass news.

While there are nice things to mention unfortunately problems with contents and server and speed problems continue. It is good but not as good as todays users are used to do. On a scale where answers.com would get 10 points I would give our dictionary 3 points. They are probably in this businnes for long time and have a bigger team.

When I typed "businnes" in that above sentence I knew it was incorrect and opened Turkish Dictionary.net but it doesn't recognise it. Answers.com does. This makes all the difference.

Something new that I have come accross is clicking on links. When you use answers.com and click on a link the link actually doesn't open and the program understands that you are not trying to open the link but you are trying to check the word.

Perhaps the number of people joining here and other turkish similar sites, and holidaying in Turkey gives a bit of a clue!

Thank you for the suggestions. I will get back to improvements on the dictionary and on the websites after my thesis defense. I also have some quite big ideas, but unfortunately very little time.
