question downloading Office 365

Van Lant, Robin
 

I currently have an old copy of Office 2010 that I installed from a CD.  I’m thinking of moving to the subscription to Office 365.  I’ve heard a couple of you mentioned cloud based office products.  If I purchase the Office 365 subscription from the Microsoft store, is it a given that I can download local copies of the Office products to run on my computer?  I’m just a bit confused on this aspect.  It seems that JAWS runs better and I’m certainly more comfortable with having local copies of Office.  Is there a reason people wouldn’t install it locally?

Yes. You can downloaded to your PC. I did so. I use office in my PC instead the web.

It should allow you to download a copy rather than just using the cloud.
I'd call Microsoft to make sure, but I have it on both my wife's and my computer; but I started the subscription a couple years ago and it certainly was a download and install deal then.

I had some of the same thoughts when I purchased 365. They say it is best to uninstall your previous version of office, so I called Microsoft accessibility, let them tandem in and do the the whole process. I have had no problems.

Did they uninstall your old version of Office before they installed the new version?

Hi Robin,
One of the key points is that the Office 365 that you install on your computer receives updates monthly.
It is also more accessible than the one in the cloud.

Hi, Robin.

As John has correctly indicated there are some definite advantages to moving to Office 365. First, I can assure you with 100% certainty that you may download local copies of apps such as Word, Excel, Outlook, etc. If you decide to go with Office 365, you will be provided with a download link to a setup file. Once you run and install the setup file it will immediately download and install all of the Office apps. During this process almost no intervention from you is even required. Just run the setup file and the process of installing your Office programs begins immediately. If your UAC or user account settings are set to ask you to verify that you want to install Office just say Yes and then the process will begin. After the installation has completed the various Office apps will be available in your start menu.

As John has said Office 365 is updated monthly. These updates may contain new features that you will not receive if you have a perpetual license of Office, such as the license that you currently have with Office 2010. As an example, if you purchase Office 2019 you will certainly receive security updates but you won't receive any additional features. With Office 365, you not only receive security updates but you will receive additional features, as well, including some which may have a positive impact on accessibility.
