Word processing software is for everyone! Doctors, lawyers, kindergarteners and college students all use word processing software today. In fact, one of the problems created by word processing software is that there is no longer a need to have a secretary in many circumstances.  The main function of a secretary used to be typing documents, but in today's work world, people are expected to create documents for themselves.  Other people who use word processing software are business executives, teachers, and writers.  Most word processing software is inexpensive enough for most people today, and most people who own a computer have word processing software.
