I have downloaded some ws that contains some errors which I want to correct before I hand them out to my pupils. The problem is that they are not editable, they look like pictures or what I would like to call "locked" objects.
Is there any way in Microsoft Word to edit ws where the texts appears to be non-editable?

Thanks for answering!

You can position a word box over the offending word or phrase and quite literally cover up the mistakes.

It would be much better of course if everyone shared editable files.

The locked files are probably jpg picture files. It is possible to convert them to editable text with OCR applications - which are usually not free - such as Acrobat Pro.
Another way is to open them in a photo editing application such as iview (irfanview) which is free and erase the error. Hopefully you will be able to make the needed corrections.
