There are several keyboard oriented tutorials for MS Word. MS Word is, however, 
not a desktop publishing program. I can't say what the differences are, but my 
sighted husband, who uses MS PUblisher and MS 
Word, emphatically states that Word is NOT! a desktop publish app, whereas MS 
Publisher is. Anyway, the problem with print books that purport to tell people 
how to use computer programs is that they are loaded 
with screen shots, which do not ocr well at all, and they are also not keyboard 
oriented. I'd suggest you'd have better luck finding one of the keyboard 
oriented tutorials that are produced with screen reader users in 
mind. John Wilson and Brian Hartgen produce two, and I'm sure there are others. 
Your screen reader vendor may have some ideas also.
