[Athen] Using VoiceOver with Mac/IOS Word Processing Applications

Hi Michele,

I think the student is limited to using Pages as part of the iWorks suite. I have tried using MS Word 2011 and it does not seem to work with VoiceOver at all.

So, if you are looking for a word processing application that works with VoiceOver for both OS X and iOS, then I think Pages is your best option. The upside is that Pages will open and save out MS Word files, so that may be the best option for the student.

Take care,
