Description
Twenty years ago, Sun Microsystems developed the Open Office which included the ODT. It is open-source software that can serve as a free alternative to Microsoft's Office suite of products. The Open Office is compatible with several Microsoft document formats and it's offered for free. The word processing element of Open Office is the writer application that produces ODT files.
Technical details
OpenDocument text file format in both proprietary and free software stands alone. A Technical Committee (TC) which is an affiliate of the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards industry consortium developed a web-based office suite. ODT files are created with synchronized multimedia integration language and scalable vector graphics which have all gone through the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility initiative standards.
