Be sure to unblock the wepm file after downloading.

All this would be great advice if an app were at issue. But the
Office helper is a DLL file that is supposed to load with any Office
application. On the rare occasions when I've gotten it to load, it's
been because the autoload registry setting was manually changed
before running Word. Once Word runs for the first instance, it
changes that autoload binary value from 3 to 2 because there's a
runtime error when initializing and loading the Window-eyes addin.
I also note that most times, since the Window-eyes helper addin is
unchecked at Word's startup, checking it does not actually load the
addin, so the document cursor is never determined. Put differently,
even after manually loading or checking the Window-eyes helper addin,
it never actually loads.
Most frustrating of all, the helper addin loads fine in Excel,
Powerpoint, Outlook, etc., just not in Word.
