locked Re: History with Jarte and NVDA

I agree that Jarte is quite a nimble word processor and works well with NVDA. While every feature in Libreoffice may not be as accessible as we might prefer it is extremely powerful and works well enough to function with NVDA. It has a regular release cadence from what appears to be a vibrant and passionate team.

What do you want the program to do that it doesn’t now?  And what benefit is there for support?

Hello NVDA Group,

In 2007, I became aware of Jarte and NVDA when getting a refurbished
computer from a Texas-based organization called Computers for the
Blind. For those unfamiliar, Jarte was said to mimic the functions of
WordPad and go further. It was paired with NVDA on computers provided
by this organization.
Since 2019, Jarte has not released new updates nor supported its
latest updates. Is there a program that is now promoted to be as user
friendly for the vision impaired as Jarte was bestowed with such
acolades?

I assume NVDA and Jarte were favored by the above organization as each
offered a free version. Thanks in advance.
