DDB (Digital Dictionary of Buddhism) and CJKV-E (Classical Chinese) are collaborative works edited by Charles Muller, University of Tokyo. DDB Access gives access to DDB and CJKV-E from iPhone and iPad. DDB Access is a free app. Any user may access the dictionary by entering "guest" as the username with no password. This will allow a total of 10 searches in each of the DDB and CJKV-E dictionaries in a 24-hour period. Contributors can get unlimited access by submitting a 350+ word entry as specified at http://www.buddhism-dict.net/contribute.html DDB and CJKV-E are primarily resources for scholars. Contributors are required to have completed a graduate degree to at least the equivalent of the M.A. level in graduate school program at a fully accredited university, where one has received direct formal training in the reading of classical East Asian Buddhist texts. Features: - Search dictionaries by Chinese or by translation. - Text reader: copy a full text and get all words with one click. - User chooses to show pronunciations in Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Vietnamese. DDB Access is also available for iPhone and iPad. Special thanks to Michael Beddow who developed and steadfastly continues to maintain the DDB and CJKV-E servers. Michael makes this application possible.
