Alt+shift+f to open the Docs file menu, , down arrow to download as, enter
to open the submenu, down arrow to choose the format of choice, press
enter. Has this individual tried these steps? Note that it is best for
accessibility mode to be turned on in Docs if it isn't already, and for the
individual to use focus mode, instead of browse mode in Orca.
