There is a new feature included in the
Office 2016 apps called Smart Lookup. (This feature is similar to the one you'll
find in Microsoft Edge when you ask Cortana for assistance in the web browser).
Smart Lookup allows users to research specific content using the web
information through the Insights functionality.
If you need to know the
definition of a word, or you need to research a place or a person, or you
simply want to know more about something specific. Instead of using the web
browser and leaving the document, simply select and right-click the text you
want to research, and select Smart Lookup.
Word opens a new Insights
panel to the right of the screen and displays two tabs – Explore and Define.
Explore provides options to explore the web
for the contents that deal with the selected word.
Define provides the dictionary definition
of the word including phonetics and pronunciation of the word
Not only does Smart lookup add to
user’s confidence but also proves itself as a wonderful language learning tool
for Students and learners.
Here is an example of what you will see when you Smart Lookup “Edge”:
