Word Processor Suggestions Help Please.

Hi Everyone,
I am wanting to buy a Windows Laptop, but I don't know what to look for in a good Word Processor though, as I've noticed some Laptops have different processors in them, so I'm not for sure what to look for.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Janet
Peace Be With You.

I have the Microsoft Office Suite on my Windows 10, but it
could be that someone else knows of others compatible with
Windows so that you could make a choice.

Do you just want to do rather simple work or do you want more complex abilities? I suspect that in general, word processors manufacturers put on Windows machines are free, and maybe open source. Microsoft used to have a starter version of Word for Windows 7 that manufacturers could put on but they haven't had anything of the sort for a long time.

If you tell us what you want to do, you might get better tailored suggestions There are many free word processors to choose from and I wouldn't buy a computer based on what may be included if you can get a better laptop at a cheaper price without one or with a different one than people like. JARTE is a good one. Open Office and Libre Office may be good ones. Others will have to comment on that. You can install all of them yourself. Even if you aren't comfortable installing programs, you may be able to get enough help from the list to allow you to do so.

Jarte is a great word processor that is not as powerful as Word but is certainly more robust than Wordpad. There have been some changes with the Jarte landscape, however. First, Jarte is no longer being developed. Along those lines the Jarte Plus program, which used to cost $20.00, is now free. Therefore, if anybody is interested in using Jarte I would advise downloading Jarte Plus from www.jarte.com while it's still available, considering that we don't know how long the Web site will continue to remain operational.

Hi David and All,
David this is so true what you are saying, and I didn't mean to say a Word Processor though, but to say a Processor for the Laptop I was wanting to buy. I don't really need a Word Processor, as I will only be doing some basic editing. Thank you for this clarification. I don't know as much about computers as I would like to. So, you just tought me something. I bought a Lenovo - IdeaPad 3 15" Touch Screen Laptop - Intel Core i5-1035G1 - 12GB Memory - 256GB SSD - Platinum Grey. I won't use the touch screen though, it came with the Laptop.

Hi Janit,
I have a Linovo, and I love it!!!!! It's not a touch screen, but even if it was
I wouldn't use it. It's fast, has good speakers, small, lightweight, and easy to
use!!!! Then again I use my computer for pretty basic stuff, emails, Internet
browsing and such, so I don't want/need a real fancy or high-end laptop.
Congrads on your purchase, I hope you'll be happy with it and don't have too
many (or better yet no) issues and that it lasts you a long time!!!!!

Hi Gene,
I didn't mean to ask for Word Processor, I meant to ask for Processor of the Laptop I was wanting to buy, I will be doing basic editing, using email, surfing the internet, using Zoom, but all of this is pretty basic I think. Smile. I just bought a Lenovo, I hope it is right, as it sounded pretty good to me. I thought $499 sounded pretty good, as I searched and search myself, and had other people searching, and all the Laptops were quite exspensive. That is why I sent a couple messages out to the list, but didn't get any advice is what kind of Laptop to buy.

Hi,
Yes, the Lenovos do sound pretty good, and I like the light weight. I won't be using the touch screen either, but I didn't have to pay for the touch screen, as it already came with the Laptop. I will be using my Lenovo for basic things as well. I'm a little nervous about setting it up myself though.

Hi,
Yes, the Lenovos do sound pretty good, and I like the light weight. I won't be
using the touch screen either, but I didn't have to pay for the touch screen, as
it already came with the Laptop. I will be using my Lenovo for basic things as
well. I'm a little nervous about setting it up myself though.

Hi Janit,
I have a Linovo, and I love it!!!!! It's not a touch screen, but even if it was
I wouldn't use it. It's fast, has good speakers, small, lightweight, and easy to
use!!!! Then again I use my computer for pretty basic stuff, emails, Internet
browsing and such, so I don't want/need a real fancy or high-end laptop.
Congrads on your purchase, I hope you'll be happy with it and don't have too
many (or better yet no) issues and that it lasts you a long time!!!!!

Hi David and All,
David this is so true what you are saying, and I didn't mean to say a Word
Processor though, but to say a Processor for the Laptop I was wanting to buy. I
don't really need a Word Processor, as I will only be doing some basic editing.
Thank you for this clarification. I don't know as much about computers as I
would like to. So, you just tought me something. I bought a Lenovo - IdeaPad 3
15" Touch Screen Laptop - Intel Core i5-1035G1 - 12GB Memory - 256GB SSD -
Platinum Grey. I won't use the touch screen though, it came with the Laptop.

There is a difference between a word processor used for writing and editing
documents as opposed to a processor in a computer which can determine its
overall speed and performance. Which term are you wanting more information

Hi Everyone,
I am wanting to buy a Windows Laptop, but I don't know what to look for in a
good Word Processor though, as I've noticed some Laptops have different
processors in them, so I'm not for sure what to look for.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm getting it from Best Buy, and it will be delivered on Jan 05-2021. I can't wait to get it! That is the only date they had, and even if I wanted to pick it up, I would have to wait until Jan 07-2021, so I took the delivery date. Some people say to just turn on Narrator, and follow the steps. Is this right?

Hi Janet,
Where are you getting your laptop from? I didn't have to set up mine on my own,
the store where we got it from did it for me. I might be able to help you with
setting up Jaws, are you using Jaws now?

I've never used Narator, but that would seem to make sense. When my sister got
her Lenovo Narator seemed to be on already, but she's fully sighted so she
didn't need it. Too bad they couldn't help you set it up, it sounds like you're
worried about doing it on your own. I don't blame you, I would be too. Good
luck!!!!

We don't know how you use your computer, but if you use it for purposes like streaming, e-mail, browsing, word processing and other undemanding uses, you don't need more than a moderately powerful machine.

I don't know how tight your money situation is or if you want to likely save hundreds of dollars while getting a satisfactory machine but you may want to consider a machine from Computers for the blind. They sell refurbished machines and I believe laptops sell for about 150 dollars.

Of course, it won't be a really fast machine, but it should be fast enough to satisfy people unless they really want a machine that does things like open programs quickly and other things like convert files from one format to another quickly. But for a lot of people, most of the time they spend on a computer is in working with a program such as in reading and writing e-mails and the time savings is unimportant.

I don't care that my e-mail program takes perhaps five seconds to open my e-mail program and perhaps three or four seconds to open my browser. If I spend twenty minutes going to and reading web pages, what difference does four or five seconds make?

You likely got a machine you will be satisfied with. You aren't doing demanding things. I sent you another message before I saw yours. I don’t know if you want to consider Computers for the blind or if you want to get what you purchased.

I hope you give the list more time to discuss a question like this in future. The list had just started discussing it. People hadn't ignored the question, they just started discussing it over a number of hours rather than sending a lot of messages right away.

Hi Gene,
I didn't mean to ask for Word Processor, I meant to ask for Processor of the Laptop I was wanting to buy, I will be doing basic editing, using email, surfing the internet, using Zoom, but all of this is pretty basic I think. Smile. I just bought a Lenovo, I hope it is right, as it sounded pretty good to me. I thought $499 sounded pretty good, as I searched and search myself, and had other people searching, and all the Laptops were quite exspensive. That is why I sent a couple messages out to the list, but didn't get any advice is what kind of Laptop to buy.

Do you just want to do rather simple work or do you want more complex
abilities? I suspect that in general, word processors manufacturers put on
Windows machines are free, and maybe open source. Microsoft used to have a
starter version of Word for Windows 7 that manufacturers could put on but
they haven't had anything of the sort for a long time.

If you tell us what you want to do, you might get better tailored
suggestions There are many free word processors to choose from and I
wouldn't buy a computer based on what may be included if you can get a
better laptop at a cheaper price without one or with a different one than
people like. JARTE is a good one. Open Office and Libre Office may be good
ones. Others will have to comment on that. You can install all of them
yourself. Even if you aren't comfortable installing programs, you may be
able to get enough help from the list to allow you to do so.
