.docs files.

With new files it seems to help if I save to One Drive instead of to

Hi all,
I just received a Word document, but when I open it Jaws won't read it, any
idea why I can't read it and what I can do to get Jaws to read it? It's an
assessment, so it's meant to be filled in and it's not in protected view or
anything. Using latest versions of Jaws, Office 365 and Windows 10. Really
hope someone can help as I really need and want to get this filled out.
Thanks Madison
