Three Great FREE Word Processors: Shhh, Don’t tell our Microsoft Overlords!

March 5, 2009

Microsoft Word is a wonderful word processor, but it is not the only one available.  For a long time technological progress was measured by how familiar a person was with the Microsoft Office Suite, but now it is possible to use different tools and not lose the ability to communicate.

This session focuses on three free word processing options.  Openoffice.org is a productivity suite with many of the features of MS Office.  Both Google Docs and Buzzword are online word processors which offer convenient storage and sharing options.
