Writer works pretty well, but not nearly as well as Microsoft Word. It's best to open Writer directly, rather than using the OpenOffice control panel. I'd probablyh use OpenOffice writer in desperation, but it's not particularly accessible.

I've heard nothing but problems with people trying to use that with JAWS.Granted I don't know of anyone who's tested it with the very latest version,but that seems to be the trend.

My computer crashed a while back and I havent installed it. I installed it once but I notice that jaws couldn't read thedialog box such as the one when exiting a document that you haven't saved oryou have made changes to. Also the thing that made me completely stoppedusing it was the ssay all command in jaws. I press it and Jaws only red oneline! I installed the Java platform and the access bridge that requires it to work. Am I missing something here? I mean it could be something that Ineed to do in the writer programme it self? and does anyone know how to sortout the say all command as I said before it just red one line! When I wastyping a few sentences to see how it would work with Jaws. I think it wouldbe a pritty good programme to use if it was tweaked abit reguarding accessabilty. Any big or little infomation anyone has is most greatful! Thanks Daniel
