Why not in Outlook?

19 out of 23 people found this review helpful

The app works great in word but is unavailable for use in Outlook 2013. Furthermore, Microsoft seems to have seen it appropriate to remove the Encarta dictionary from outlook as well, leaving you with no option to define words while composing/reading emails!? Please make this app compatible/available for Outlook 2013 ASAP.

Limited and unreliable

Has limited definitions and a limited vocabulary, which is frustrating - having entered what you know to be a legitimate word, only to find it does not have it listed. Also, the whole thing regularly will not load. Frustrating.

Doesn't work

March 3, 2013 by Tim

It doesn't work. I've installed it twice. It tells me my internet is down and gives me an error message. The Bing one works. This one is terrible. And why do I need to download and fool with an app for a feature that's been a part of Word for the past 25 years? It's just crazy. It's an opportunity for some developer to make a decent app, but it's a shame that Word shipped with no dictionary and poor support from MW. Boo.

Below basic

This is the worst dictionary imaginable. It will only list one sense of one lexical item per lexical form. Homonyms: forget about it. Synonyms: click the link, and it'll show you in a webpage (but not with your default browser). Phonological forms: what are they? I know it's cliche, but one star is too much for this trash. I don't know why Microsoft didn't include the infinitely more advanced Encarta Dictionary with Office 2013.
