I use LibreOffice because I don’t want my work locked up in unreadable formats. Apple no longer supports Appleworks, of course, and no longer supports older documents in Pages.
I have severe rsi, and sensory and coordination issues.
I can’t disable the flashing cursors in LibreOffice. Flashing anything makes it hard for me to see, can hurt, and can be disorienting, so it makes it hard to check where I’ve been typing. LibreOffice defers to a system setting, and OS X uses different settings; I can disable some flashing cursors in OS X but not LibreOffice’s flashing cursors.
I would like to be able to use Dragon for Mac, if and when the construction pain dies down, to be able to disable all autoformatting, and to be able to open my .odt files and save back to .odt or another open not-scheduled-for-obscelence format. Ideally also .epub or .html.
