If you’re running the gorgeous new Office 2016 for Mac Preview, I’ve got good news: Microsoft has updated the pre-release suite of applications with a major update. Among the additions are improved VoiceOver support in each of the content creation apps, plus other new features, various performance improvements, and bug fixes.
If you are using Office 2016 for Mac Preview—and, seriously, it is a major improvement over the lackluster Office 2011 for Mac, even at this early stage—you can grab the update—really a set of updates using the Microsoft AutoUpdate tool. (It could run automatically the next time you run one of the Office apps. If not, visit Help and then Check for Updates.)
