If you are interested in learning more about the ribbons of Word, I have a free training on my website. Look for the free training link at www.blindtraining.com.

"Don't spend a lot of time complaining about things that aren't going to
change anyway" is obviously a wise bit of advice. But throw me a bone here, people. A guy gets to kvetch just a little bit before giving in, doesnt he?

I'll definitely look up the FS training module you mention:  thanks.

Long ago on this very list, I was complaining about FS changing the
options
dialog and the order of items. A subscriber to this list (who I haven't
heard from in a long time) told me to "stop whining and just deal with
it".

I applied the same philosophy to the Ribbon, and have learned to use it
quite well. If you have to learn something to do your job, you generally
do.
It's amazing how well we humans can adapt when we just put our minds to
it.
Complaining doesn't help in the learning process, from what I've
experienced.

And I believe that there is a training module on the FS web site on the MS
ribbon and how to use it.

Well, I had heard that MS was going to use both in future versions, but
according to Mr. Halsworth I'm mistaken.  Until something is actually
released, I don't know what to believe.

Hi Bill, and others! That sounds great does anyone know how you would
change it back the normal way instead of using the damn ribbons? Another
thing I might add is that I went blind when I was 16 and now I am 20 so
before office 2007 came out I had a visural idea of whow the normal way
of
office looked like and when I lost my sight and was tought to learn
with
Jaws. Now I just get compuse. Just out of cureiousoty if someone on this
list had sight could they explain visualy what the ribbons look like? It
might help me.
Many Thanks
P..s I had an idea maybe if fs could do a kind of webpage in the help
topics of Jaws with microsoft office apps kind of like what's changed and
what verious things are in catorgies For example if I remember right
before 2007 to change the file size you would go to the format option go
down arrow once find font hit enter on that tab twice and then you find
the file size then change it to whatever you want and then hit enter. Oh
not forgetting you have to highlight what you want 1st. And another
example is thing wear you find out how many pages you are on your
document
how many words etc it wa some wear in tools I think again in 2003. But in
office 2007 I haven't got a clue!
