Hi Gerry,

This is a wonderful tip, and has made reading documents with word 2010 far 
easier for me, so thanks for passing it on.

I noticed a 'set as default' option in the styles menu and I seem to have 
applied the word 2003 style now on all documents, or at least they are reading 
much better!

Thanks,

Stuart.

Hi, Tim,

Here is something else to try along with draft view.

Click alt-H then G and you will be at the "Styles Set" submenu. Hit <Enter> and 
you can arrow up and down a list of styles. Choose Windows 2003 by hitting 
<Enter>. I understand that this returns the appearance to what was present in 
Office 2003 and may work better.

This change is only temporary, so will revert to the default style for each new 
document. I know in Office 2007 you could go back into the "Style Set"
submenu after choosing a style and set it to the default, but I can't find a 
way of doing this in Office 2010.

Give it a bash and see if it helps.



Take care,

Gerry ellis

Thanks Donal  will try draft view.

Unfortunately, switching away  from Windows isn't an option  in my situation.

Try view draft tim.  Turd 2010 and jaws 12 were among the main reasons I 
stopped using windows.  Incidentally, I'm reliably informed by sighted friends 
and colleagues that the ribbon bar is as awful for them as for us.
