Spellcheck just got better in Word and Outlook

So today I was typing up something in Outlook, and I (like normal) misspelled a word. I right-clicked on the word with the red squiggly line, and got a lot more information than I expected…

Outlook recognized that I misspelled “impossible”, but instead of just giving me a list of alternative words, it gave me alternatives with synonyms, *and* it even gives me an option to have the word read out loud:


I tried this in Word, and it also does this same thing. Unfortunately, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote still has just the normal list with no additional info.

I’m assuming this is something new that just rolled out recently, as I don’t think I’ve made any changes to my Office settings. 🙂
