Word is a word-processing program, meaning it helps a user create a variety of documents composed of words or text. Options are available to change the appearance of the document by formatting the text. Different styles and sizes of lettering can be applied, text rearranged, borders and colours added, and pictures inserted to create documents such as letters, pamphlets, or posters.
