I am disheartened that I cannot open up the dictionary on a letter of the alphabet and search the entire dictionary by first letter. I am a medical transcriptionist, and I need to find any word that a doctor, nurse, or technician may say or even mispronounce. Sometimes I only have vague sounds to go on, and in foreign accents. The ability to open by letter of the alphabet was my favorite feature, as I could search the web page for syllables or parts of a word that I new I had heard correctly. It would improve this site to be able to open up by first letter again--and then I would find this site a blessing and superior to the last.
Thanks for this. We have removed the letters of the alphabet pages as now we have added more content (and more to come), these pages are several thousand entries long and they became overloaded. Instead we are working on the search facility to allow users to locate more accurately and this should become available once fully tested for reliability. We are also working on similar sounding words to allow better retrieval.
