Write and collaborate on documents anywhere, anytime
Adobe® Buzzword® is a proven and robust online word processor — perfect for writing reports, proposals, and anything else you need to access online or work on with others. Everyone can access the latest version of a document, share feedback, and respond to one another's comments from any computer. Built on the Adobe Flash® Platform, Buzzword looks and behaves like a desktop application, but it operates inside a web browser. There's no installation required, so getting started is easy — and free. Sign up now or learn more about subscription options.
With Buzzword, you can:
Create print-perfect documents
Print exactly what you see on the screen. Fonts, letter spacing, colors, and graphics are all reproduced as intended.
Access your documents from anywhere
Access all your documents online, eliminating the need to email attachments back and forth.
Collaborate with any number of contributors
Write, edit, and comment on documents with only the people you choose — no need to exchange email attachments or combine different versions. Control access levels and track edits by contributor.
Control versions and keep track of changes
Avoid editing and reviewing conflicts since everyone works with the same version of the same document. Use the history feature to view and compare changes made or revert to a previous version.
Comments in context
Easily add comments to any document. With a different color for each reviewer, it's easy to distinguish who said what.
Role-based access control
Share your documents with anyone you want and decide each person's level of access: coauthor, reviewer, or reader.
Easily revert to any earlier version of a document. Buzzword automatically keeps a record of recent changes, so you can view and compare changes across versions.
View the status of each of your collaborators. See whether they are editing or reading a document, or find out the date and time of the last version they viewed.
Ability to share with a wider audience
Publish a document so that anyone can view it without the need for an Acrobat.com account.
Easy image placement
Import JPEG, PNG, and GIF images to liven up your pages. Buzzword provides easy-to-use tools for sizing and placing images and automatically flows text around them.
Create bulleted lists, numbered lists, or checklists. Easily promote or demote list items and add, delete, or skip bullets, numbers, or symbols in a list.
Also part of Acrobat.com
Create Workspaces to easily share and collaborate on a set of documents with individuals or teams outside your organization. Online Workspaces eliminate the need to email large file attachments and simplify the way you work with others.
Upload documents so you can access them from anywhere, share files without the hassle of large email attachments, convert files to PDF, and keep it all organized — with ease.
Share your screen and host ad hoc meetings with a web conferencing solution that's easy to access and simple to use. Adobe ConnectNow is ideal for the basic needs of individuals and small groups.
Work with others on information typically shared in spreadsheets or simple databases. Multiple people can update data at any time, so you have a living document for maximum collaboration.
What people are saying
Customer success stories
"There's a definite element of fun to using Buzzword. This is evident not only in the quality of student work but also in the enthusiasm with which students approach their projects."
West Springfield High School
"Acrobat.com brings everyone on the same page — literally. It's a central and reliable resource for authoring and sharing documents, and for reliably connecting students and faculty."
Director of course design, research, and development
American Public University System
"Buzzword takes the hassle out of sharing, reviewing, and collaborating on documents. Course content can be made available to everyone simultaneously, and students can comment, ask questions, and add input that is shared among project groups. It's one of the easiest online collaboration tools that I've used."
"When you're constantly on the go, everything comes down to accessibility. We can now use Buzzword to access documents without worries. Previously, we had to deal with downloading emails with huge attachments that inevitably crashed systems or large numbers of document drafts crowding folders."
Senior art director
"Other online word processors just try to be like online versions of Microsoft Word. Buzzword is the only one that took a creative, new approach — and it works so much better. It looks like actual printed pages, which is not only great from a design standpoint but also helps non-tech-savvy users get started faster and create better quality work."

Manager and editor of www.lifehack.org
"Buzzword is a great alternative to trying to collaborate on documents via email because we can view and comment on materials in real time. It helps eliminate the delays and miscommunication that can happen when people all work on email attachments on their own."Klara Banaszak
