    You could open the file, take a screenshot, and save as jpeg. Lots of free screenshot programs. I like Lightscreen.

    Thank you for your help.
    What I am trying to do is to burn a lengthy word doc ( life story several pages) onto a dvd that will play on a stand alone dvd player.
    have you any further suggestions please

    As has already been suggested several times, you have to use some type of screen capture utility to convert the Word document to a graphic format. You cannot burn a Word document directly, as text, to a DVD and have the player recognize it.

    There are literally hundreds of screen capture programs available. I know. I've looked for one that performs a specific function. It's just a matter of trial and error until you find one that works for you. If the document is lengthy, you may need to look for a program that takes screen shots of entire files in applications that includes a scrolling feature.
