Hello Everyone,

Yesterday I was looking at *MS Word *with* Voice Over.* Our Native Screen
Reader user informed me that she has always had to copy/ paste to TextEdit
app with no formatting for Voice Over to read Word docs with a MAC OSX.

I thought the solution would be putting these MS Word docs in our D2L
Reading Frame, but Voice Over does not read this, it says Image only in
Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

*Voice Over read the MS Word doc if Copy/ Paste in to D2L Html file only. *

*Another unrelated issue is some MS Word docs that are not licensed with
proper copyright are encryped and do not read at all with Jaws or Voice
Over. *

Any feedback would be appreciated if you have experience with MS Word and
Voice Over.

Thank you in advance.
