Fora Reader Description

The linguist's dedicated browser & featured dictionary
Fora Reader is a foreign reading tool with a simple-dedicated-embedded browser, dictionary management, rapid word translations and text annotation for viewing with any web browser.Written in the Java programming language, Fora is cross-platform and internationalized. It works on Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems and currently available in English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Russian, Arabic and Portuguese interfaces (note that the translations are in beta stage). Currently it has only one comprehensive English-English dictionary out-of-box due to file size and bandwidth constraints.Fora uses various types of inline tooltips to display translations and never suspends reading/browsing activity by using well-tailored tooltips right around the word to be translated.Whether you are a professional translator, a student doing homework or a web surfer looking for new horizons, the intuitive functionality will greatly help you communicate in languages which isn't your native and will enhance your productivity.Fora can be viewed as a tool that virtually converts every document (or website) to an interactive one that has a complete integrated glossary.The name Fora is an acronym derived from "Foreign Reader's Aid". It has no connection with the English word "fora" which is plural form of "forum".Rationale behind applicationWhen the number of words in a paragraph that which you don't know meaning exceeds about approx. 20% of the total, crawling regular dictionaries becomes increasingly tiring, even infeasible, and a need to better utilize the computer's graphical user interfaces (e.g. tooltips) and interaction hardware (e.g. mouse), arises.Fora uses various tooltip-like customized pop-ups to display translations.The tooltips are controlled completely with trivial mouse movements or clicks.While you can use auxiliary tray mode to translate from every application, Fora's principal usage is not designed for a "general-purpose" contextual dictionary, but a reading tool that works exclusively with web based documents. Since most documents can be converted to a web-based one (e.g. html), workspace is not limited to html files or the web.Important Note: Starting with version 2, Fora uses Mozilla/XULRunner as the underlying rendering engine. In order to keep file size reasonable, XULRunner library is not included in the application. Thus, you will need an installed and registered XULRunner v1.9 or newer in order to use Fora.
