Words Reminder (Odpytywacz Słówek) - Version 1.6 Available Now (02.09.2008)!!!Words Reminder can help if you study a foreign language and need something to remind you of the words you just learned, but are about to forget. The program is very small, stays on top of the screen, does not bother you at work, and continuously takes a random word from your dictionary and displays it, asking you to enter the translation. If you do not enter the translation, after several seconds the program will show it to you itself, wait a few seconds so that you can remember it, and then ask you another word.
The dictionary you can create and extend yourself, it is just a text file using the following format:
word = translation
another word = another translation; yet another translationThe UTF8 encoding is used by default, in order to properly display characters from different languages. However there is an option to change it to Windows1250.
The program is 100% clean of any ads, malware, spyware, viruses, trojans and backdoors. You can find Softpedia certificate here: http://www.softpedia.com/progClean/Words-Reminder-Clean-68308.html
Version 1.6 just posted. You can minimize program to system tray, and make it show discrete hints.Version 1.5.0 just posted. You can now right-click a word in the history to mark it as "already-learnt", so that it is not displayed in the program. Normal (left) click still does the same - adds the word to the "hard to remember words" list.I will be very happy to hear what you think about my program and its features.
