Hi,

You're good to go assuming your screen reader and other software works.  Bear in mind Office 2010 support ends in October 2020.

Hi Mo,

Ok, so it's Monday morning and confusion reigns!

My operating system is Windows 7 and that is the one that is ending its support at the end of the year? so That's what needs upgrading I believe.

I already have Office 2010.
