Version 1.4

Word processor for kids.

OK-Writer overview

OK-Writer is a word processor for Mac OS X that was designed with children in mind. Story windows have lots of big, friendly buttons that provide quick access to kids' favorite fonts, styles, and colors, as well as for saving, opening, and printing stories. Another button tells the Mac to read the story aloud to the child.

As your child grows up, OK-Writer will grow with them. OK-Writer provides additional features tucked in the menu bar where they won't confuse younger children, but are available as your child matures. With a spell checker, find and replace, and support for adjustable tab stops, it will be years before your child outgrows OK-Writer!

OK-Writer was tested by children from ages 4 through 9, as well as by adults, so you know that anyone can figure it out -- even mom and dad! There's an extensive help system, written to be understood by older children, with a special section for grown-ups to get additional information.

Although OK-Writer is shareware, there aren't any annoying reminders or crippled features -- we don't think it's right to confuse your child just to get you to pay for our software. Instead, we encourage you to pay the low shareware fee so we can continue to add new features to the software -- and we'll never hit you up for another fee for OK-Writer again!

Excellent, simple word processor. Runs quickly, and all the important preferences are easy to find- they surround the document- brilliant.
