Google Slides has a feature to allow k-12 students search on Youtube and insert videos to the presentations. Similarly, Google Forms, Hangouts, Classroom and Sites have this feature too.
Learning language plays a significant role for k-12 students. Google Docs integrated a handy Dictionary feature where words can be looked up on the fly. However, some admins worry that students may easily pick up vulgar words such as the F word, especially when the dictionary suggests students offensive synonyms. Instead, they prefer a child-friendly dictionary to the built-in unfiltered dictionary in Docs.
In another example, some admins want to disable the dictionary for the exams, since Dictionary indeed provides informative technical details that ruins the quiz question per se. Take a Physics question “explain what Momentum is” as example. The dictionary already gives the hint “the quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity.” if the feature is available.

How Safe Doc blocks the dictionary feature?
3 Google apps include the dictionary, Docs, Slides and Drawings. The feature is located in similar menu items. Note not to confuse with the personal dictionary in the spell check which doesn’t query new words and is safe to have.
The dictionary feature can be triggered in 2 ways,
Select the word, right clicking and selecting Define “xxxx”
Click menu Tools – Dictionary.
Safe Doc removes these menu entries so students won’t discover the feature. Take a look the subtle user interface changes. As you may also notice that the Explore “xxxx” menu is gone, yes, the Explore feature is another “risky” feature for students. You can learn how to disable the Explore feature.
Safe Doc disables the dictionary feature from a context menu in Docs, disables the Dictionary feature from the menu bar in Slides, and disables the Dictionary feature from the menu bar in Slides.
