Re: accessible word processors with NVDA

I used to do this with CAPTCHA, though to be fair, you do have to capture something to solve it—hidden words or numbers in an image or sound, the true image if you have to drag/drop parts of a picture, etc. It's a perfectly reasonable mistake to make. Good thing Espeak NG says it more clearly now, isn't it? :)

Hi, is there a free trial for Jot? If so how long is it free before you have to pay? Or, do you have to buy it in order to use it?

The thing about Jarte is that to open docx files it needs the purchased version as far as I know. OOpen and Libra Office seem to be able to load in docx files, but as has been discussed here of late, the authors need to do some more work to allow screenreaders to work on all parts of them like read all etc.

Of course it might  be possible to find an old copy of an older version of Office pro corporate which I did and it still worked aand accepted the key.
Legal?  Well, its a grey area isn't it. if the original buyer is giving it away, then who cares.
