An electronic dictionary has been launched to help Thais better understand legal terms, words and expressions used in the charter and charter draft.
National Legislative Assembly (NLA) deputy chairman Surachai Liengboonlertchai yesterday launched an application called Constitutional Vocabularies and Expressions Electronic Dictionary.
It can be used via the iOS operating system with easy and convenient access to the document.
The electronic dictionary will allow Thais to educate themselves about the charter via their computers and mobile devices. The application has an audio function that helps users know how to pronounce the words they search for.
Surachai said the dictionary was also useful for legal specialists and members of the National Reform Steering Assembly and Constitution Drafting Committee.
Surachai chaired the NLA’s committee on information and communications technology.
A Suan Dusit Poll last week found that most people did not have enough knowledge of the charter to make an informed decision on it in the upcoming referendum, which is slated for July. The application can be downloaded free at the App Store and at www.senate.go.th.
