The students in the Computer Science program at San Juan College were proud to the developers of Navajo Word Processor, also known as NWP.
NWP was the capstone project for the Computer Science program from January 1999 to May 2013, under the direction of Dr. Tim Reeves (retired).
NWP has moved to exclusive development by NettaSoft with a new release in development.

NWP version 6.0 works on multiple operating systems just like its predecessor, Navajo Word Processor 5.1. We have successfully tested it on:
Windows (32 Bit & 64 bit) Linux MAC (OS & OS X)
  • XP Home
  • XP Professional
  • Vista Home Premium
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8
  • SuSe Linux 11.0
  • Ubuntu Linux
    • Release 8.10
    • Release 9.04
    • Release 12.04
  • Fedora Linux
    • Release 10
    • Release 13
    • Release 14
  • Tiger (10.4)
  • Leopard (10.5)
  • Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Lion (10.7)
Features Include:
  • Navajo English Dictionary
  • Navajo Keyboard Layout - available on-screen and can be printed as needed
  • Virtual Keyboard (full-size - English and Navajo Language support)
  • Virtual Keypad (for access to English Characters while using Navajo Fonts)
  • Virtual Calculator
  • Bulleted and Numbered lists
  • Inserting images
  • Font Selection from the toolbar
  • Quick font swap from the Navajo Fonts to their English counterparts with the "F6" hot key
  • Improved page formatting
  • Backwards compatibility to all previous Navajo Word Processor releases including Navajo Word Processor 4.1
  • Ability to save documents in PDF format
  • Ability to save documents in Open Document Format (ODF)

The Navajo Fonts used in Version 4.1 were developed by the students and were licensed by Monotype Imaging. With Version 5.0, Scott Teague developed three new fonts for use on multiple platforms. They are Navajo Serif, Navajo Mono, and Navajo Sans.

The Navajo-English Dictionary has been created and maintained by the students.

The "Virtual Keyboard" is a small step towards implementing a new level of accessibility. NWP is the only known word processor with the ability to compose an entire document with only the mouse.

Note: Since January 14, 2008, NWP has been developed using Qt by Digia. All previous versions were developed with MFC by Microsoft.
