Strong vision of Hawks for words, that’s what we mean by “Hawksword” and so as the app does.
For dictionary look ups, now you don't need to type or speak up the same word with multiple retry. Hawksword simplifies that job for you.
Features of hawksword Dictionary:
1) Camera capture and OCR recognition to scan books, newspapers and all print media (requires permission of FLASH LIGHT, CAMERA and AUTO FOCUS. So, might not be available in all the devices)
2) Voice recognition with the list of all the probable gueses

The most useful feature of the app is the list which gives more flexibility. Scan big text(from camera) or copy paragraphs (from other apps), hawksword will parse those words and will list them out. Now with just one click you can access the dictionary meaning of any word.
