Category: 

Description of App: 

A free Java based open source office client similar to Microsoft Office or Apple IWork, and is just as powerful as both, if not even more so.

Free or Paid: 

Free

Version Of OS X App Was Tested On: 

10.6.8

Accessibility Comments: 

the app definitely does work, that much I'll give it, but there are enough problems to piss me off that I refuse to use it.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface makes the app very difficult to use.

Other Comments: 

For example, the preferences window constantly crashes when voiceover is enabled, each paragraph appears as a seperet text field, just little things like that, that are just enough to make me wanna scream!
