recommendation for ms office equivalent


Craig
 

Hi.

 

Recommendation sorted for an office software that can access ms office files and obviously nvda can access as well.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

 

Cheers Craig

I have had good success with open office.  It has a standard menu system, instead of ribbons, which I personally like.

Seconded; I think this a nice package, though I haven’t used the spreadsheet or database components extensively. Now, one thing to keep in mind though, is that while it can open most newer MS-type documents, it cannot save in the recent MS Office formats. You can save in the older MS formats, which newer versions of mS Office can still handle.

Shouldn’t you use Libre Office instead of OpenOffice?  From what I understand, OpenOffice is not supported, but LibreOffice is.

I have not tried LibreOffice, but my understanding is: Libree is more frequently updated, but still has some accessibility barriers that Openoffice does not. I know someone involved somehow in the LibreOffice project was posting on this list sometime not long ago, so perhaps he will chime in. I thought of giving Libre a spin anyway, but really, both Libre and Open do the same things and have almost exactly the same functionality, so I didn’t think there was really any advantage in having them both around.
