Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is a word processing program. The purpose of Word is to allow the users to type and maintain documents. Some of the tools include a spelling & grammar checker, word count and the newest version includes speech recognition. With this program, you can make professional documents or reports with inserted pictures, tables, contents and index.

Our Word courses take you from the initial steps of document creation, printing and saving through to efficiently creating structured styles and multiple-page reports. Mail Merge is one of the strongest attributes to the program which allows the user to create labels from a linked data source or a specific letter or e-mail which can then be personalised from the data provided or created.
