Because touchscreen devices are becoming more common, Word 2013 offers a Read view that is optimized for use with touchscreens. Read view shows a large-print version of a Word 2013 document, and you can use swipes to move from one page to the next.
There are also some touch-optimized menus that can be accessed while in Read view. These menus allow you to perform simple tasks such as finding a piece of information within the document.
Despite adopter hesitance because of the touch-centric Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft has addressed those using tablets or straddling interfaces with its Windows 8.1 update.
