WordKeeper™ FAQ

Q: What is WordKeeper™?
A: WordKeeper™ is software that reads data on discs included in both products that cover pre-1993 publications. Journals and abstracts for 1993 forward are presented in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.

However, these documents remain available for owners of legacy SEG products seeking to resolve WordKeeper™ issues themselves.

Q: On what platforms will the WordKeeper™ operate?
A: DOS, 16-bit Windows and early Macintosh systems. Users manuals for each of these platforms are provided here:
