The ever-creative crew at "Woody's Office Watch" also publish a "for
mere mortals" version of their popular Office Watch newsletter that's
designed to be less intimidating and more friendly to those who are
less confident of their skills. The current issue (5 September 2007;
Vol 8 No 17) doesn't appear in their archives (and clicking the
"current issue" link gives me last year's issue), but you can find it
at instead at their "news" page:

Here's a quick excerpt of a couple key points from yesterday's issue:

"Instead of using the mouse to click on ribbon icons just press the
Alt key (just press once, no need to hold the key down).
With the Alt key pressed a series of letter and number tags will
appear over the ribbon, these are the reminders of keys you can press
to access that part of the ribbon."

"If the key represents a direct function, then pressing the key will
do that thing. For example pressing Alt then 1 will normally go to
File Save (if it's the first item on the Quick Access Toolbar). More
usually, the first key will lead you to the next level of the ribbon.
For example Alt then N for the Insert menu then U for the Symbol
menu. Some shortcuts have two letters (eg ZP and ZL on the Insert
menu), press both letters, in order to access than option."

Worth exploring, and if you don't already subscribe to Woody's
various newsletters, they're well worth your effort.
