Microsoft has unveiled Works 8, the latest version of its popular home office software suite.
The product adds an improved Calendar, a PowerPoint Viewer and an enhanced dictionary.
The dictionary module has been integrated into the word processor and is also a stand-alone application in the Works Task Launcher. A thesaurus has been included, as well as the option to set parental controls.
The new PowerPoint Viewer is designed to let users view PowerPoint presentations on their home PC without having Microsoft Office or PowerPoint.
Improvements to the calendar application allow up to four people to create their own calendar customised by colour-code. The View Together option allows users to combine, or overlay, any combination of calendars.
According to Microsoft, the improved Task Launcher gives users faster access to the frequently used calendar application from the home page, and one-click access to address books. The product also features an auto-backup and document recovery application.
Kim Schaefer, product manager for home productivity at Microsoft, said in a statement: "Works is great for small projects, such as tracking appointments or creating a grocery list, as well as more complex projects, like managing a sports team or planning a family reunion."
