Both in the Orland Park area and around the world, in these times of new online technology, fast laptops, new computers, and smartphones, there always seems to be equipment that is just too hard, complicated, or advanced for adults to use. However, this is not true—with a little bit of help, adults too can learn to use different Microsoft programs on their computer to learn new skills and become a better writer.
While many adults who have a basic understanding of the computer are familiar with writing in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel can seem a bit more challenging. Microsoft Excel is still a great program that can help people write down tax information, input important data, and gain the skills to organize meetings or reading notes.

Just like its many other great reading programs for children, teens, and adults, this technology computer program helps improve “literacy” in an older audience.
