My parents recently purchased a laptop as their first computer in… well… ever. After getting all the necessary peripherals, there is still about $200 in the budget for software.
When I ask what they want to be able to do with their computer, the answer I get is “Oh, I don’t know. It would be nice to maybe make a small spreadsheet or watch some history videos. We’d also like to be able to play some find-it games”.
So I’ve narrowed it down to an encyclopedia of some sort, a typing program, microsoft office (already have), and a couple simple games off of Bigfish. My mother cooks a lot, so an interactive cookbook type program might interest her. Can anyone recommend some fun software along these lines?
They won’t have an internet connection, FWIW.
