If you want to customize the eJOY dictionary to suit your own document lookup and translation needs, this article will guide you through:

  • How to always display English definitions when looking up words.
  • How to automatically pronounce words when looking them up.
  • How to instantly display pop-up translations upon selecting texts.
  • Choose your preferred translation tool when using both eJOY and GlotDojo.

1. How to always display English definitions when looking up words

  • If you're at an intermediate level or above, set the pop-up to display English-English definitions to familiarize yourself with English expressions and thinking as follows:

Select the eJOY icon => select "Setting" => select "Show definition first".

  • However, if you're at a beginner level with limited English vocabulary, you may turn off "Show definition first". This way, you'll see translations into your native language every time you look up a word.

2. How to automatically pronounce words when looking them up

  • To practice pronunciation or listen to word phonetics when looking up words, follow these steps:

Select the eJOY icon => select "Setting" => enable "Auto pronunciation".

  • You can also choose the default pronunciation between British and American by:

Select the eJOY icon => Select the settings icon => Select "General" => Choose "Accent Priority" as either "UK" or "US" as you prefer.

3. How to instantly display pop-up translations upon selecting texts

  • If you're deeply engaged in reading and wish to display pop-up translations immediately without clicking the eJOY icon, follow these steps:

Select the eJOY icon => select "Setting" => select "Immediately Display" under "Popup setting" and "Advance translation settings".

4. Choose your preferred translation tool when using both eJOY and GlotDojo

  • If you're using both eJOY and Glot Dojo to learn languages, you can prioritize the translation tool as follows:

Select the eJOY icon => Select the settings icon => Select "Default Extension" => Choose the extension that suits your needs.
