F.A.Q. for Palm OS Users

Q: I have installed a dictionary file to the expansion card, but RoadLingua doesn't allow to browse it, why?

A: This is because you have installed file to the folder on expansion card different of those RoadLingua searches for the dictionaries. Dictionaries should be installed to either /PALM or /PALM/RoadLingua folders. To copy or move files already installed on expansion card we recommend to use TealMover by TealPoint.

Q: I have downloaded a free English-Spanish dictionary, why it asks me to register?

A: We should distinguish RoadLingua that is a dictionary viewer software and dictionary files.

RoadLingua is a shareware, this means you have to purchase it if you like it. For your convenience there is no trial period, so you may use it as long as you want without registration. The limitation of the non-registered version is an inability to display pronouncing transcriptions.

Dictionary files have their own distribution license either freeware or shareware. Basically, shareware versions have 14 days trial period. Freeware versions are free.

Q: I run RoadLingua from Memory Stick card, but it doesn't work in resident mode. Why?

A: RoadLingua cannot be run in resident mode if RoadLingua.prc located on an expansion card, because it should stay in RAM all the time to be run as a resident
