    Handy tool for figuring out illegible words

    Margaret Y Wayfarer

      Hi, I would like to share a tool I found online that has helped me figure out many words that were unclear at first.  It's called "Find a word", and the URL is here:

       

      https://www.dcode.fr/word-search

       

      This tool lets you enter the letters you DO know, and it will give you a list of all the possible combinations of words that fits the pattern.  For example, you can say the word starts with "B", ends with "NS" and contains an "A" somewhere in the middle.  You can also specify the total number of letters in the word in order to narrow it down further.

       

      This tool has helped me so much and I hope somebody else will find it useful as well.

       

      For those of you translating French documents, I just noticed today that it apparently works for French as well, if you select the French dictionary.

       

      Happy transcribing,
