Microsoft Word 2021 - the versatile word processing program
Word 2021 is the latest version of the worldwide used word processing software from Microsoft. With its integrated tools and intuitive operation, the extensively equipped Office program goes far beyond the mere writing and editing of texts: numerous design options allow the insertion of graphics and tables, the versatile options for the presentation and formatting of documents are not only suitable for the completion of business correspondence, but also for the creation of professionally designed theses and informative reports, but also business cards, brochures and flyers, which can be saved directly in Word as PDF for printing. Different file formats can also be edited with Microsoft Word .
Many typical format templates are supplemented by additional extensive choices for page layout to create clear, quickly readable texts; important documents can also be protected from copying or marked for further use by inserting watermarks.
In addition, many intelligent tools such as the spell checker and autocorrect options make it easier and faster to compose text documents according to the valid spelling rules.
The practical ribbon makes it particularly easy to switch quickly between the individual applications with a single click.
The optional connection of the Desktop program to Microsoft Cloud also allows several users to work together on a document in real time, providing numerous options for improved teamwork. Also, Word 2021 has an individual assignment of rights Pro individual Word.doc, which can, for example, restrict or prevent reading or editing by another person.
In addition to these proven functions of the older Word versions, MS Word 2021 also offers a number of new practical features that make writing and editing as well as reading text documents even more pleasant and efficient than before. These include Dark Mode, which is easier on the eyes, especially when spending long periods of time on the screen, clear view options for longer text files that speed up searching for specific passages, and improved accessibility support. Learning tools increase readability, and the freehand feature allows users to draw their own sketches and diagrams by hand and insert them directly into a document. To use MS Word 2021 on your computer, prior installation of Windows 10 is required. All important new features in Word 2021 can be found in the following overview.
In the Wiresoft online store you can get the current Word 2021 version as well as its predecessor and other Office programs as especially low-priced single applications.
All new features of Word 2021 at a glance
Switching to the 2021 version of Word can be particularly worthwhile for users who create texts professionally and want to improve their efficiency in writing and reading. Many features make it easier for them to concentrate even better on the essentials.
Especially if documents are to be designed barrier-free in order to reach a group of addressees who have difficulty reading and understanding texts, the newly integrated functions, which also take international standards into account, make it easier for you to create texts that can be read by everyone.
More features are also available for the creation and publication of scientific documents, especially when using complex formulas, which is now possible thanks to the support of LaTeX, the standard program used worldwide.
Greater clarity through different view options
Visually, Word 2021 also offers more options. For example, this version combines the ribbon User interface familiar from Word 2016 with the modern, familiar tile look that is also typical of Windows 10. Frequently used elements or functions are placed more prominently, so they are available even faster.
And if you prefer to continue using the familiar ribbon look from the earlier Word version, you can also redesign the interface.
The greater clarity also applies to use on devices with touch displays, such as tablets and smartphones, where the sensitivity of the interface for input by pen has been increased.
Particularly when working on large text documents, it can quickly become difficult to search for specific passages or sections. In Word 2021, in addition to the familiar vertical view in which you scroll through all the pages from top to bottom, you can also use the new "Page by page" function to flip through a Word document like a book. For texts of medium length, the new "Thumbnails" function provides orientation: In this case, all pages are displayed small in the overview so that you can quickly navigate to the position you are looking for.
In addition, Word 2021 has more discreet backgrounds with the new dark themes Dark Gray and Black, which also support concentrated writing and reading of texts.
Greater accessibility through support for error correction
The improved supportive error correction integrated in Word 2021 suggests improvements in how you make a document accessible. To do this, this draws on international standards, among others, to ensure that content is easy to read and edit for users with disabilities.
By clicking on the "Check" menu item under "Check accessibility", the program will make suggestions for you to fix, you can easily accept them immediately via one-click.
For this purpose, you can also use the audio feedback support. The Cue Audio function then accompanies you with sound effects and audio cues as you work. It gives acoustic hints or warns if you change certain options unintentionally, or as a confirmation after an action has been performed: for example, when sending an e-mail or deleting or inserting content.
Learning tools for more efficient text work
Learning tools are not only a practical feature for students in Word, but they also make it easier for professionals to understand text. For example, the tools integrated in Word 2021 allow you to adjust the column width, the text spacing as well as the page color in order to ease the strain on your eyes due to the clearer display.
The line focus increases your concentration and ensures less distraction by limiting the reading area to either one, three or five lines. If you want to have a text read aloud in Word 2021, the words you are currently reading are highlighted simultaneously so that you can easily follow what you hear in the text.
The focus mode known from older Word versions is also used in Word 2021 for better concentration: the display of the document becomes clearer by hiding all toolbars.
Integrated translation function
In order to translate a text passage or even the entire text while writing or reading, in Word 2021 you no longer have to call up a web page via the browser in order to obtain the translation there: the integrated translation function makes this unnecessary with the help of automatic speech recognition. The Microsoft Translator contains more than 60 languages, 11 of which can be translated.
Freehand drawing tool
What was previously possible with touchpads or smartphones is now also possible with the new freehand drawing tool for Word. Optional by pen input, touch operation, but also with the computer mouse you can use the freehand function to set marks in the text or spontaneously create sketches and formulas and insert them.
For this purpose, Microsoft provides several digital pens in Word 2021, including a pencil for drawing, a pen for writing and the highlighter for highlighting text passages. Various pen thicknesses are available, as well as 16 solid colors and 8 effects.
Each drawn freehand shape can then be moved or copied and further edited just like other drawing elements.
Adding and editing vector graphics
Presentations and worksheets can be designed in Word 2021 by integrating pictograms and symbols as well as 3D images. A particularly interesting option here is also the use of scalable vector graphics or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) files. These can be resized, rotated, or even colored differently without loss of image quality.
Using LaTeX in Word 2021 to create formulas
When creating scientific text, there used to be limits to how complex formulas could be displayed using the formula editor. Word 2021 now supports LaTeX for the creation of professional formulas, which can be converted with it.
