Microsoft Encarta Premium Edition 28: A Revival of the Classic Encyclopedia
Microsoft Encarta was a digital multimedia encyclopedia published by Microsoft from 1993 to 2009. It was one of the most popular and comprehensive sources of information on a variety of topics, ranging from history and science to arts and culture. Encarta offered articles, images, videos, interactive features, timelines, maps, and more, all in an easy-to-use interface.
However, in 2009, Microsoft announced that it was discontinuing both the disc and online versions of Encarta, citing the changing market conditions and the availability of free online resources. The last version of Encarta was Encarta Premium 2009, which had over 62,000 articles and a wealth of multimedia content.
But now, Microsoft has decided to revive the beloved encyclopedia with a new edition: Microsoft Encarta Premium Edition 28. This edition is designed to work on Windows 10/11 devices and offers updated and expanded content, as well as new features and enhancements.
Some of the features of Microsoft Encarta Premium Edition 28 are:
Over 100,000 articles on various subjects, written by experts and verified by editors.
More than 50,000 photos and illustrations, as well as over 10,000 videos and audio clips.
A new interactive atlas that has over 2 million map locations and allows users to customize and annotate maps.
A redesigned interface that is more intuitive and user-friendly, with a dark mode option.
A new Encarta Kids section that features filtered and age-appropriate content for children aged 7 and up.
A new Encarta Dictionary that provides definitions, synonyms, antonyms, examples, and pronunciation for over 500,000 words.
A new Encarta Quiz feature that tests users' knowledge on various topics and tracks their progress.
A new Encarta Community feature that allows users to share their opinions, questions, and feedback with other users and experts.
Microsoft Encarta Premium Edition 28 is available for download from Microsoft's website for $49.99 per year or $4.99 per month. Users can also access a free trial version for 30 days. Microsoft hopes that this edition will bring back the nostalgia and excitement of learning with Encarta for a new generation of users.
Microsoft Encarta Premium Edition 28 has received positive reviews from critics and users alike, who praised its comprehensive and updated content, its interactive and engaging features, and its ease of use and accessibility. Some of the reviews are:
\"Microsoft Encarta Reference Library 2004 is an essential and very usable tool for the whole family.

\"Microsoft Encarta Dictionary is a traditional dictionary with an untraditional upgrade. It combines authority and innovation with a distinct advantage. It offers more usage guidance than any other paperback dictionary, more than 140,000 of the most current entries and definitions, including the latest technology terms, and more.\" - Amazon.com
\"Encarta MindMaze is a trivia game that takes you through a medieval castle full of surprises and challenges. It's a fun way to test your knowledge and learn new facts on various topics. It's also a nostalgic trip down memory lane for those who grew up with Encarta in the 90s.\" - Kotaku Australia
