Default how to get office 365 for free for a blind it student


hi, a blind it student and using the jaws for windows screen reader from http://www.freedomscientific.com, and enrolled in a diploma of software development from http://www.upskilled.edu.au, i am in adelaide, south australia, australia. my issue, is that my school, does not have student e-mail addresses, and think does not have a office 365 subscription. now, i donn't have a student e-mail address, well from other colleges i was enrolled years back, but not enrolled, and so, there's dosen't seem to be an option, when i login into my online student portal, just use my email address and my password login. so, did contact microsoft answer desk, they could not help me, no option, for putting in a different e-mail address, no pption. don't have a credit card and paypal. do have a legal copy of office pro 2010, 64 bit, but getting a bit long in the tooth. so any one else run into this problem, not having a student e-mail address, are there any services, that i could be given a student e-mail address, and cannot use my lectuer's e-mail addredss, that would be tied to his account, and don't know his password, and that would be ethical. want to be legal, and get a free legal copy. any one had this same issue. just frustrated. tried googling, but keeps taking me back, any aussies on here, is there a way, to get around this blockage, only have yahoo and gmail addresses. stuck. marvin.

To participate in an educational licence for Office, you would have to be a staff member or student at an institution that has such a licence. If your institution doesn't have one, you're out of luck. Microsoft does not provide Office for free - even to educational institutions (they have to purchase a licence).

As for Office 2010, that should be fine for almost all Office-related development you might need to do, since most corporations would be using that, Office 2007, or Office 2013, not Office 365 or Office 2016.
