Hi Adrian,
Despite the fact that it is normal that JAWS does say anything when you save 
with CTRL+S if you correctly opened the template for editing (the more you 
might hear is the sound assigned to the Process Completed event if you have the 
Office Sounds add-in installed and you checked the Provide Feedback with Sounds 
item in Word's advanced options), I think the way in which you're being 
suggested to open template is not the most convenient. This is for two reasons: 
exact file location varies on Windows XP compared to newer versions and, the 
most important, unlike standard documents, template files by default create a 
new document based on them when you open with ENTER, so you need to open the 
context menu to choose the Edit option instead, like when you are on a standard 
document you must choose New if you don't want to edit the current file.
To directly edit the Normal.dotm template regardless of your operating system, 
do the following:1
. Open Word and, when opened, close the blank document with CTRL+W. Even when 
you'll not directly edit a blank document, blank documents are based in 
Normal.dotm and this file might be in use by a blank document when you try to 
save it.
2. Press CTRL+O for the Open dialog.
3. Tab to the File Type combo box and select the option for All Word Templates 
or something similar.
4. Tab to the Address Bar (or Look In combo box if you have Windows XP) and see 
if you're in the Templates folder. If not, drop down the Look In combo box and 
choose Templates. If you have Windows Vista or newer and you're not in the 
Templates folder, tab to the folder tree view and, at the top (press HOME to 
quickly go there) find Templates and press ENTER to go to that folder.
5. Tab to the list of files and find Normal.dotm and then press ENTER.
6. Make the changes you want and save (not save as) with CTRL+S as any normal 
file. You won't get any prompt or confirmation, but you might hear a sound if 
you have the Office Sounds add-in installed and enabled.

Hope it helps!

Well, the properties dialog for normal.dotm indicates a change was made at the 
time I attempted to save it, so I may have succeeded despite the lack of JAWS 
confirmation. Unfortunately, I don't think my changes took effect. The page 
numbering dialog acts differently in the template. I'll try again. 
To read page numbers in a Word file, I press alt-v, then h, then arrow down. 
Does anyone have an alternative method because I don't find this one reliable. 
I'm using Word 2010.
Thanks again, David and Mike.

Mike, you anticipated the query I just posted. Our messages crossed. I've gone 
through David's steps again and this time pressed the applications key. After 
setting page numbers the way I want, I pressed F12 for "Save as." Unlike 
before, the filename is what I want, normal.dotm. However, I'm not getting the 
"All" option. When I press control-s for a simple save, nothing is verbalized.

Hi Adrian,

To find the Normal.dotm, find it as David suggested, but to edit the 
Normal.dotm don't just open it, use the context menu.  With the, Normal.dotm, 
highlighted press the application key or, Shift + F10, to open the context 
menu, arrow down to, Open, & press enter.  Now you can edit the Normal.dotm & 
save the changes to either just the document you're working with, or All 
Documents.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Subject: [JAWS-Users] How to open Word 2010's normal.dotm file?

Hi. Most settings that I want to be my default in Word 2010 can be set in 
specific dialogs. For example, I can set a default font through the font 
dialog. However, it doesn't seem possible with page numbering. So I've been 
trying to locate and open the default.dotm file. One online instruction says to 
open Office 2010, then click on templates, but I can't even locate Office
2010 as a separate item. When I click on Word 2010 in my programs list, it 
opens a new document rather than giving me the template option.

Can someone get me past this seemingly basic hurdle? Thanks.
