Verbal View of Word and Verbal View of Word Advanced

Verbal View of Word

Verbal View of Word takes special care to focus on aspects of Microsoft Word that are not obvious to the blind user from the normal Word documentation. Instead of focusing on the mouse and visual cues, this tutorial lets the user know how the keyboard and screen reader can be used to accomplish word processing tasks efficiently and elegantly. Verbal View of Word Advanced

Verbal View of Word Advanced goes beyond the basics and gives the blind writer the tools needed to perform nearly any editing, collaboration, or publishing task with Microsoft Word.

Verbal View of Word 2007 is a comprehensive tutorial designed to teach the basic features of Microsoft Word 2007. The Verbal View Software Tutorial Series emphasizes the use of the keyboard. Some of the topics omitted from most books are discussed at length because they greatly benefit blind users.

This CD also contains Microsoft Word 2007, html, contracted braille, and text versions of the document so you may send it to a portable device like the Braille+ Mobile Manager or other note taker with a refreshable braille display.
