Unfortunately this is not possible. Generally, screen reader users rely on
the list indication to determine the presence of roman numerals. Roman
numeral indication is context dependent.

Subject: [Athen] Lists in Word with Roman Numerals

Hi all. As far as I can tell, using the letters "I" and "VII" for Roman
numeral in a Word list/outline are not read correctly in screen readers. It
is possible to insert the actual Roman Numeral symbols into a Word document,
however seem to be impossible to format a list/outline using Roman Numeral
symbols. Is there a way around this?
