DDB Access provides the DDB content for words found in a Chinese text.
DDB Access relies for parsing on monthly DDB and CJKVE extracts provided by Charles Muller, and for content on XML pages from the DDB and CJKVE websites.
Using DDB Access requires a DDB password.
DDB Access shares a common look and feel with the SmartHanzi.net and SmartKanji.net websites. While SmartHanzi.net and SmartKanji.net are general parse and lookup tools for Chinese and Japanese, DDB Access includes DDB content not available in the websites.
