Good question. I do these with my totally blind students. Yes, at first they need direction and help. The lessons I attached to the information is what really guides them, helps them and gives them the direction they need to do this all by themselves. With a little practice they can do it all.
I even had a senior do her senior project on doing all these types of inserts in her powerpoint presentation all by herself in front of a crowd. She was written up in the local newspaper because everyone thought it so amazing...just practice, thats all.

>I've attempted these things as someone who
is totally blind, and have experienced great difficulty in doing so. For one thing,
how do you truly know what the borders look like? And how do you truly know your
work is aligned perfectly/centered correctly after borders are added? How do you
truly know what the pictures you want to insert look like, or if they really did
copy correctly? It seems that this message applies primarily to those with partial

>In the upper
elementary school, and beyond, students are asked to make their presentation or
research papers look colorful. Where sighted children are cutting and pasting
onto their work, blind and low vision students are taught how to make their fonts with great color, putting borders of
artwork around paragraphs, words or the whole page. Students
also insert pictures and position them where
they need along with different types of WordArt.
>All the Basics of Inserting Word Art and Clip Art just click on Office 2003 or Office 2010 to get what
you need.
>All the Basics on making your font colorful and stylish are found at Office 2003 and Office 2010 The same commands work in both Office products.
>Enjoy and have fun. Students Love knowing they can do anything their sighted
peers can do when the teacher starts giving directions, they just do it on a
computer. It is a huge confidence builder and reinforces all their skills now
and makes them want to learn even more so they can tackle anything that comes
up in the future.
