3) Volume adjustment control.

5) It is three dictionaries and a thesaurus - and everything could be heard and read.
6) It has screen brightness adjustment for perfect viewing in different light condition
7) Sound can be turned on/Off
8) IT ca be used as to learn spanish or to learn English

The device is built well and is very strong and high quality keyboard. I have had it for months now and love it. It is small and light enough to take it anywhere in your pocket. The lid protect it - no need for buying cases.

Highly recommended

Not a good product, the screen does not have any backlight, therefore, it is very hard to read unless you are in a very well lit area. The screen is also very small. The instructions provided are basic, it takes a long time to play with the machine before you fully understand all the operations. It does not convert sentences which anyone speaking or learning spanish is important as words in a sentence can give a different meaning once put into a sentence.

This is the second Franklin Electronic Dictionary I have owned and its well worth the extra outlay, when compared to the cheaper model. The database is very comprehensive, it contains more rather than less than you might expect: very pleased

I bought this to replace another model bought 3 years ago, (Franklin DBE-1490 Spanish/English Dictionary). The old one was rather bulky and I lost it because it would not fit in my pocket, so not that portable. The old one also had disk style batteries and these were expensive and never handy when you needed them. The new one has many advantages over my older model, mainly smaller so very portable, nicer looking and pronunciation/sound option for everything.

It also has a proper English dictionary (English words with English definitions) which is an added bonus. This feature would also be useful for higher level Spanish learners of English, as they are encouraged to avoid translations when possible and use the native English dictionary to understand the new word, only reverting to the translator if necessary.

It also takes ordinary batteries which is a bonus (2 x AAA) so you don't have to plan ahead and keep spares of a size you will not use anywhere else.

It has the usual games and conjugations. I am very pleased indeed with it. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that it is not backlit, and unlike all our other screens nowadays, it is difficult to see in dim conditions. If they fixed this design feature, it would be PERFECT. I think it really deserves 4 1/2 stars without a backlight because in every other way it is the perfect portable Spanish-English (and English only) dictionary.

Takes some getting used to the configuration of buttons. Ok as a straight dictionary but not used it for phrases as they are pre programmed and thus have to be looked for. One cannot just type in a phrase and have it translated (which was what I was really looking for).
If I have missed this feature I would like to know! It would be great to have an off-line translator.

Great little dictionary, with plenty of other useful functions. I'm beginner in Spanish, and I find the sounds and word lists very helpful.
The device runs on two AAA batteries.
The inside feels sturdy especially the buttons. Should really have come with a carrying pouch or sleeve.Instead you get a tonne of unreadable small prints/instruction 'guide'/ survey junk.

The biggest let down is that the screen doesn't have any backlight.
Note: the inside is black as shown in the picture above, but the outer side of the device is actually silver.
