I bought this dictionary for my very nearsighted husband, but he never uses it. When he wants to look up a word, he does what he's always done: he pulls the "Webster's Collegiate" down off the shelf and reaches for his magnifying glass. He did try using this dictionary, and he found it beautifully legible. However, there are no children in our household. We are just two college-educated, Scrabble-playing adults, and almost none of the words we look up in the "Oxford American Large Print Dictionary" are there. Based on the "Oxford American Minidictionary," 2004, this large-print edition offers no derivations. This might be a great kids' dictionary, if it has a stand (it's very heavy).

It's just the nature of the beast, a large print dictionary would be gigantic if it was truly comprehensive. The Oxford American Large Print Dictionary is a reasonable choice. considering the inherent limitations. The font is large and crisp, the layout is clean, the paper is decent quality but the definitions are brief and you won't find every word you're looking for. Not every word used in the definitions are defined themselves.

This is really a minimum dictionary. It might be appropriate for a sight-impaired third grader, but any adult looking for a large print and full content dictionary needs to look elsewhere. I had hoped this would save me the trouble of pulling out my magnifying glass, but it doesn't.

I wanted a large print for the obvious reasons, but this dictionary weighs a ton and there are so many words left out of it. I am sorry I asked for it. I have already recycled my old dictionary and am sorry I did that so quickly. Like my son said, why don't you just use the online dictionary. He's right. That is what I will do from now on. I like books, but this one is a pain to use. Don't bother with it.

The large print is wonderful. Not so wonderful is that the word "chihuahua" is not included. It was the first word we looked for and it just wasn't there. We were working The Daily Codeword and had H and I as clue letters. We had guessed that C was the first letter and looked for a word beginning with "chih__h__." and didn't find it.

Very fine; fills many needs.
However, I'd still like to find a large print, self-pronouncing, paper-back thesaurus; If it does not exist, someone should produce one. It is not available thru A - nor anywhere else, it seems.

I wear computer glasses and would have to keep switching from them to my regular reading glasses so often that it became a real pain. But with this great dictionary I can look something up in a flash without changing glasses. Glad I have it.

She has a slight difficulty reading, so this makes it considerably easier and more amenable to look up words. I strongly recommend it to anyone who finds it tedious to look up words in a dictionary with a regular font, or to people with dyslexia and other vision problems.
