If I am understanding the question, yes you can create a custome list in Word to use Roman numerals. No, screen readers will not read them correctly, but you can have a numbered list that uses Roman numerals.

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?
