Also depends on what version of JAWS you have, make sure it is 17 or over I
believe, for Windows 10.

All the best

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

I already have Office 2010.
