Wynnewood, PA (October 6, 2008) - A spectacular print resource is now available in a new networked interactive digital version and running on SAFARI Montage, the leading digital media management and video-on- demand solution. The Visual Dictionary is a unique, interactive reference tool supporting all K-12 subjects that extends the boundaries of traditional dictionaries and brings visual instruction to new heights.

Through the SAFARI Montage system, users throughout the school and district can access over 6,000 illustrations, 14,000 terms written and spoken in English and Spanish and definitions of these terms written in English, and integrate these vivid illustrations into playlists and multimedia lesson plans. This reference tool also allows users to test their vocabulary through stimulating exercises and will enhance any visual learning experience.

“We are very proud to launch the Visual Dictionary on the SAFARI Montage network as this will bring an exciting new dimension to learning in schools. We are also pleased that SAFARI Montage shares our company’s dedication to excellence and quality in creating innovative products,” Caroline Fortin, Publisher and Vice-President of QA International.

“Questions such as ‘what is that thing called?’ or ‘what does that gizmo do?’ are answered by The Visual Dictionary, and students and teachers will love referring to it over and over,” said Andrew Schlessinger, CEO of SAFARI Montage. He added, “In addition, every term is not only spoken in English, but in Spanish, as well, making it an unmatched ESL and foreign language instruction tool.”
