Hi. If you're referring to the Office Compatibility Pack you can
read more about it and download it from
The Jarte documentation indicates that this pack
was automatically installed for users of Office 2007 or later.
However, Microsoft must have at some point decided that this addon
was no longer needed as I have Office 365 installed and I was not
able to open a file in Jarte containing a .docx extension.

I’ve probably exhausted this thread, but
how do you get the added office package?
In view of the problem
someone experienced, as an experiment I went onto another
machine without Jarte.
I too found the enable
screenreader copied to clipboard instruction did not work.
However the following
- Install Jarte
- Close Jaws and
- Start Jarte,
Jarte will announce screen reader mode.
- Close NVDA and
start Jaws. Restart Jarte and it sticks in screenreader
mode for Jaws also now.
- .Now finally
with Jarte in focus use Jaws F2 and find settings centre
for Jarte and create the profile. Type edit in the search
box and then tab down to uncheck enhanced edit mode.
- The only other
thing I think is to install the office Add in pack to
improve Jarte compliance with Office Documents.
This all seems to work
nicely to get a free Jaws accessible Word Processor for now.
