[Athen] Lists in Word with Roman Numerals

Unfortunately this is not possible. Generally, screen reader users rely on
the list indication to determine the presence of roman numerals. Roman
numeral indication is context dependent.

Subject: [Athen] Lists in Word with Roman Numerals

Hi all. As far as I can tell, using the letters "I" and "VII" for Roman
numeral in a Word list/outline are not read correctly in screen readers. It
is possible to insert the actual Roman Numeral symbols into a Word document,
however seem to be impossible to format a list/outline using Roman Numeral
symbols. Is there a way around this?
