Here is what you must be looking for,
M.S Windows
Microsoft has added a new file format called the Microsoft Office Open XML 
File Format (.docx) to Microsoft Office Word 2007, Microsoft Office 
2007 and Microsoft Office Excel 2007. But this format is not compatible with 
earlier versions of Microsoft Office. With the help of Microsoft Office 
Pack, you can convert .docx files to .doc files very easily and you can open 
and save Office Open XML Formats in earlier versions of Microsoft Office.

By installing the Compatibility Pack in addition to Microsoft Office 2000, 
Office XP, or Office 2003, you will be able to open, edit, and save files 
the file formats new to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007. Before installing 
compatibility pack, users of Microsoft Office XP and 2003 must install all
High-Priority updates from
Microsoft Update.

This Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack supports Windows 2000 Service Pack 
4, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP Service Pack 1, and 
XP Service Pack 2.

hi list.
as all of you would be aware of, Microsoft office 2007 comes with the new
format of docx insted of the usual doc. docx do not open in office 07, and
one has to use some converters. even K1000 can't detect the new format. as
of now, I am using a converter, 'Docx to RTF'.
the problem with is that it do not get installed with the system, and one
has to open the exe file all the time o convert. are there any easier
I was using office 07, but it is not quite comfortable with jaws 8. so what
can I do?
looking forward to your suggestions.
with best regards.
