How you choose to make a PDF file from Microsoft Office can make quite a difference to how the PDF file looks and behaves…

There are two ways to convert a document to the PDF format:

‘Save As’ to save a version of the original document to a different format. Modern Office lets you make a PDF directly. This choice is sometimes called ‘Export’ or ‘Convert’.

‘Print’ which intercepts the printer output from a program to make a PDF file. Instead of a paper page coming out – a PDF file is created which looks like the paper pages. Both Windows and Mac have in-built options to do this from any program, not just Office.

Microsoft Windows ISO Download Tool lets you download all versions of Microsoft 7, 8.1, and 10 as well as Office 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019 directly from Microsoft’s servers…

Can Microsoft Word read to me? Yes, it can. There are three ways to accomplish this task: The Speak and Read Aloud features in Word, or the Narrator feature in Windows…

The Speak feature was incorporated into Microsoft Office (Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, etc.) back in version 2003. It was called Text to Speech (TTS) then, and it functioned much the same as it does now. Fortunately, it’s a very simple procedure to set up and use, so you can get started immediately.
