WordAloud -- Read Aloud English Words
AboutWordAloud is a software that reads aloud the pronunciation of an English word, and displays its definition. The pronunciation and the definition are retrieved from the webster website.
The programming language is Autoit script language version 3 (http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/). then it is compiled to a Windows executable. Other than the webster.com website, this program does not depend on any external other libraries or resources.
WordAloud is particular interesting to users whose native language is not English. They will find this very useful. The advantage of this project over using web browser is that it is much faster in speed ,because it does not load all the graphics and flash advertisements. This is especially true for people with slow internet connection. It also saves a history of the words the user has used so that the user can go back and go over those words again later.
WordAloud is fully functioning now. It runs on Windows 2000, XP, and Windows 98, and possibly Windows 95 and NT.
At this moment, the final program is just one exe file. I could easily build an installation package people really prefer it.Below is a screenshot of the program running on Windows XP.

Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/project-web/wordaloud/htdocs/index.php on line 91
