Jarte Review

Sven Sorensen
A tabbed word processor based on Microsoft WordPad's word processing engine
A review of Jarte by Sven Sørensen

Jarte is a completely free word processor which was originally based on Microsoft's WordPad, usually found on most Windows installations since Windows 95 and up until current day Windows XP and above operation systems.

While WordPad does not normally contain many features which are available to the user, Jarte is able to unlock these features and provides users with a rather powerful and fully-featured word processing application.

Jarte is extremely handy to have around, small enough to fit on to a USB stick and powerful enough to take advantage of many features not (by default) available from within WordPad.

We highly recommend this application if you want a freeware word processor, but don't have the time and/or cash to splash on a copy of Microsoft Office or Corel WordPerfect. Though OpenOffice still remains an option.

Jarte is software which can open DOC and DOCX files.

Jarte features and highlights:
  • Tabbed document windows
  • Larger buttons
  • Instant dictionary and thesaurus word lookup
  • Spell check and text search tools
  • Single click bookmarking
  • Instant access to favourite documents
  • Instant access to favourite fonts
  • Use of the mouse scroll wheel button to copy and paste text

Jarte is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from office software without restrictions. Jarte 5.2 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
