Hi Patti, Download Word? Nope, it'll cost you $$$ to purchase it or the Office sweet from Microsoft. There are alternatives like OpenOffice that provide generally the same functionality and that can deal with MS Word files, but I don't have any idea about their accessibility. Accessibility for such programs I would think would be lacking, but hey it'd be cool if they worked well.

Does anybody know anything about it, if so could you write me privately so we don't clutter up the list? Also if I want Word, can I find it and download it from somewhere, I'm wondering?
