This book is an insult to intelligent hard of seeing people
This dictionary is a disappointment to people who have trouble reading normal print dictionaries. With half the number of entries of other dictionaries, no pronunciation key for entries, no etymology and extremely bare bones definitions, this dictionary is completely useless. I wish that the publishers would issue a large print dictionary in as many volumes as would be necessary to contain all the information of a standard print dictionary. My eyes are bad but my brain is fine.

Handy dictionary for people with impaired vision.
By Dorothy E. Harkins
I like this dictionary because it is easy for me to read. It has 35,000 words including words newly adopted to today's society in America such as ICU, yahoo, yammer, yaws (a new disease) as well as unusual words. It also has a pronunciation key in the English sounds and non-English sounds.

Large Print Dictionary is excellent!
By Joan M. Cyr
This book arrived in a timely manner and was exactly as anticipated. The print was large enough for a visually impaired person to read without being too cumbersome to handle.
