Word, by default, does not break lines at forward slashes. So, you can get something that looks like this:

Audio/vis
ual tech-
nologies

…when, in fact, what you’re looking for is this:

Audio/
visual tech-
nologies

The way to fix this is to search/replace (Ctrl+H) “/” with “/200C”. After typing “/200C” into the replace field, do Alt+X while you’re still in the field. You will see your “/” pop over to the right-hand side of the field. That’s fine. Click “Replace All”, and you’ll see the desired effect.
