Small changes can make a big difference! In this new resource 'Using Microsoft Word to support learners with Additional Support Needs (ASN)' a series of short video guides explains how you can make small changes using Microsoft Word’s built-in tools to support learners with literacy difficulties.

There are 20 videos in total which are organised in a contextual YouTube Playlist.

The video guides explain and demonstrate how make small and simple adjustments (that are often overlooked) such as changing and setting the font style, customising background colours, spelling support and Immersive Reader, how to open a PDF in Word, how to create a custom toolbar in Word and much more.

The video guides also include tools that are available in Word Online (Office 365) such as Dictate and Transcribe which converts audio to text.

If you are unable to view the guides on YouTube you can view and download the videos from my OneDrive Account.

You can also supplement the video tutorials with the free illustrated guide ‘Making the Most of Microsoft Word 2016 to Support Learners with Literacy Difficulties’.
