The webinar will explore areas such as user interface, search layout and choices, and ways to interact through personal profiles and data. Get the most information on entries through the Factsheet referencing each word, its pronunciation and its history. New improvements to the platform include:
- Better site navigation, including clearer navigation
- A clear, new tabular layout, making information easier to understand
