The OLE Nepal library on the school server includes wiktionary. However,
I think the dictionary would have to be small enough to keep on the
internal store of the XO.
I am thinking of a scenario where a student is reading a text in a
language other than the native language with a controlled vocabulary
(e.g. <3500 words) and could click on a word to get the definition in
the native language. In such cases a small dictionary could be developed
The trick is to select the word being clicked on. I suspect selecting
and then clicking would be fairly easy to implement.
