Re: Replacing Jarte


I seldom use Word but I think people want  a program that opens faster.  I don't know what the state is on fast current computers but on computers I use, being somewhat old and slower, Word opens much more slowly than Wordpad, Jarte, or other such programs.

Also, and again, this may no longer be the case, but I recall problems of slower responsiveness when moving around documents for screen-reader users using Word.

I can only say that on my machines, I use small programs to read Word files because the programs open much faster and often responsiveness is better.

Uh, why?

Opening and just reading a document is not very much different in Notepad, WordPad, Jarte, MS-Word, Libre Office Writer, and the list goes on and on.  Open, gain focus where you want it, read all.

Working with writing a document can be quite a bit more complex, but only if you wish to apply formatting.  Typing up a note in Word versus any of the above if all you want is text is exactly the same in all of them.  Type, save, done.
