This electronic version of the 28th edition of Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary has most of the virtues of the print version of 1994, with additional features made possible by supporting software. Besides standard copy, paste, and print functions, the CD version provides hot-text links to cross-references and allows bookmarks and "marginal" notes to be entered on the user's hard disk. Audio pronunciations of some 10,000 terms are available on PCs equipped with sound cards. Although graphics don't reproduce uniformly well on the screen, a zoom-in and zoom-out utility helps.
