I purchased this dictionary thinking that I would be able to link it directly into my Microsoft word software and unfortunately for me that is not the case.

This dictionary is absolutely horrible. It's definitions are frequently incomplete, giving the most common usage of a word without giving any less common usages. Of coarse the main reason to use a dictionary is to look up those less common usages. The interface is also awful. A word must be entered completely and correctly to be looked up.
