Is there a program that is like kindle in this way: ?

Hello & Thanks,
Is there a program (preferably in tpfc) that is like kindle in this way:
Click on any word in text and the program shows its definition.
Thanks
Win10 x64, PureBasic, Javascript, Notepad++ .

GoldenDict perhaps... you may want to enable "scan popup".
I recommend trying the latest Early Access builds.

@vmars316

tpfc's WordWeb also excels at providing apt words definitions
(and offers much more besides: synonyms, antonyms, near alphabetic words, similar words, types of, UK|US audio pronunciation...),
provided the word of interest is Image first. (merely clicking a word won't do).

You can setup a hotkey for a dictionary lookup in QTranslate as well, select word, press hotkey. That way you have both a translation and a dictionary tool at hand.

WordWeb:
I like it: CNTRL+rightClick on any word anywhere.

Synonyms and many related words
5000 audio pronunciations
160 000 root words
220 000 word senses
Fixed web reference tabs (Wikipedia)
