I tried to have a look at it myself a while back to see if I could port the Bidi support from FBReader to FBReaderJ, but I found that it wasn't trivial and I never finished the project. If there are any coders among you the two repos are available at:

https://github.com/geometer/FBReader
https://github.com/geometer/FBReaderJ
FYI, I have forked a version of FBReaderJ with rudimentary bidi support: it can be found in https://github.com/nolaviz/FBReaderJ.
At present this version only controls direction at the whole-book level. If anyone has books which need more, I'll be glad to see examples so I know what more is needed. (Implementing the full HTML bidi model appears to me to be overkill.)

Hi Everyone,

I am not a native Hebrew speaker but trying to improve my language skills by reading books.

A must-have feature for me would be to have a dictionary Hebrew-English available by just touching a word, like we have in many e-book readers.

So, anyone knows what are my options on this regard?

Does E-vrit come with a built-in dictionary? Is it a Hebrew-Hebrew dictionary, or I can select Hebrew-English?

Any e-reader software for PC or Android comes with this feature?
Calibre does, but only option is the built-in lookup to a wiktionary site all written in Hebrew, not a good option for me.

Thanks for your help.
Fabian.
