My vocabulary is a simple application that targets users in need of a tool for quickly learning English words. The program relies on a database that you can use to store new words, alongside pronunciations.
It is suited for all audiences, on account of its ease of use and simplicity. Non-English speakers will be able to make use of a sample database, courtesy of the developer, but the possibility to create their own is still on the table.
My vocabulary relies on a short and complication-free process that ends up creating a shortcut on the desktop, for quick access. As far as the appearance is concerned, the main GUI is rather simple and rudimentary, with very few eye candying elements.
The sample database is automatically loaded during every startup, which might become bothering at a certain point. Therefore, if you choose to create your own database, you will have to load it every time you launch the application.
On the upside, the sample vocabulary can be a great starting point for your future database, thus you can add new words to it and save the changes. The words inside it are organized into parts of speech, such as verbs, adverbs, adjectives, as well as by purpose, like medicine, cinema and so on. You can add new ones to this list using a dedicated dialog, where you can specify details such as pronunciation and explanation.
Theoretically, you should be able to add new topics to the existing list, however, this has been a challenging process during our tests. The new topic is indeed, added, but you cannot rename edit or add any words to it, for that matter.
The good thing about My vocabulary is that it can be used by all non-English speaking users, regardless of their native language. However, it needs improvements in functionality, so as to allow users to manipulate vocabulary topics the right way.
