Using the Research Tools
The Research feature is available in most of the Offi ce applications, including PowerPoint.
It enables you to connect with various online and offl ine data stores to look up informa-
tion. This may include online encyclopedias, dictionaries, and news services.
The available tools are divided into two broad categories of sites: reference and research .
Reference sites include dictionaries, thesauruses, and translation utilities; research sites
include encyclopedias and news services.
You can consult all of the reference sites as a group, or you can consult an individual tool.
For example, you can look up a word in the dictionary, thesaurus, or translator all at once,
or you can just use the thesaurus.
