Not dictionary.com; but Wiktionary, which is the Wikipedia Dictionary, and
The US online reference services - BARD, NFB Newsline, etc. - are present on
The non-US English-language VRStream and VRTrek.

The first generation stream does not have any internet capabilities, but
will play all the material off the SD that the second generation stream will
play. There are some other features, which I'm hard pressed to name, that
are in the 2nd generation stream because no updates have been made for the
1st generation stream in years.
The 2nd generation stream offers everything in the first generation stream
and adds online capabilities including all of the follwoing. Note that this
is from a US perspective, things differ outside the US
* Fidning and downloading books from BARD
* Finding and downloading books from bookshare
* Newspapers from NFB Newsline
* Finding, subscribing, and downloading podcasts,
* Finding and listening to Internet radio stations
* Searching for information in dictionary.com and a few other places
I don't own the trek yet, but my understanding is that it has the same
bookreading and online capabilities as the Stream 2, but adds the ability to
use the GPS and supports bluetooth headphones.
I'm sure I'm leaving things out that others can fill in, but this is
probably enough to get you started.
