Using Styles in Microsoft Word with JAWS

Want to learn how to format Word documents more efficiently with JAWS? Join us for a live webinar, “Prep and Proof: Use Styles in Microsoft Word with JAWS.”

What Are Styles?

A style is a collection of formatting characteristics you can apply to paragraphs, headings, and lists in a Microsoft Word document. Styles look professional and add consistency to your document. Styles also save you time formatting your document.

Built-in styles are offered in Word’s templates, or you can customize styles to create your own look. If you need a business brochure, for example, you can search Word’s online templates to find the one that best matches your needs. Once you apply the template, you can update the styles to personalize the brochure and match your creative concept.

What We’ll Cover

We’ll provide an overview of styles, and show you how to:

  • Apply Word’s built-in styles
  • Modify an existing style
  • Change the “Normal” style to fit your preferences
  • Create a new style
  • Clear formatting
  • Create a Table of Contents using styles
