Hi Mary.

Many thanks.

The iPhone does read word documents. If you have a word document attached to an email the iPhone will allow you to read it. Just double tap on the attachment name.

What kind of application is this? Is voice over on an iPhone? I know you've already solved the problem but would you mind indulging my curiosity?

I finally figured out that voiceover can't be used with Word but it can be used with TextEdit.
I thank those of you who gave this any thought.
