We’re working with new software to learn how to make computer use easier for our clients. Tonight – it’s Windows Live Writer – a software that connects to your existing blog web site and allows you to create the pages off line in a “Word” type program.
I think the program has a lot to offer. Within just a few seconds of my typing – the software program was already hard at work, correcting my misspellings.
The program allows me to add video:
The above video is an example video that comes with Windows 7. I have placed it here to show how easy it was. I had many options of ‘where’ to get the video I wanted to add – from. I found the layout very simple and easy to use.
To add a photo album:
Adding to the album only took a little reading but it was very easy to do and i like the way it lays the photos out on the screen in the middle of the blog – nice.
Now let’s format the text and check the other tools: - changing the text color was easy – changing the text style was the same very OLD Microsoft font dialog box. I find that disappointing because the software has a lot of potential but it should offer drop down menus for the font options.
