Re: JAWS and Jarte

Jarte works very well with JAWS. In fact, if all you want is a basic word processing program, then Jarte works even better than MS Word. It is optimized to work with screen readers, and its menus are simple and straightforward, unlike the confusing ribbon menus in Word 2007 and higher. It even has a built-in spell checker and allows you to save templates. Really a great little word processor.

Does anyone use a free word processing program called Jarte? The features sound like they will meet my needs, but I wonder how well it works with JAWS. The website is:

I have a lot of Word 2000 documents with the doc extension and WordPad does not open this type of document in Windows 7. I am trying to find an alternative to Word since I may not need to buy that program unless my work situation changes. In the meantime, I would like access to all my documents without having to convert each one to rtf format to open them in WordPad on my new Windows 7 computer. Thanks.
