More Stuff About AirPrint
Apple's own support pages on AirPrint has documentation on what kind of printers support the protocol. Several of the larger manufacturers, such as HP, Brother, Canon and Epson all have models that support it. The printer you already have may support it, but it might require a firmware update. Also, to use Apple's own words,
"AirPrint printers connected using Bluetooth or shared through a USB port of a Mac, PC, AirPort Base Station, or Time Capsule are not supported."
Once you've determined that your printer and setup is AirPrint compatible (like my WiFi-connected HP LaserJet 100 shown above) and it is connected over the same Wi-Fi network that is accessible from your iOS device, you then have to actually use an application that supports AirPrint on your iOS device. Not all iOS applications support AirPrint.
Word for iPad: Edit and Save Your Document
Office for iPad is not currently an AirPrint-enabled application. However, you can print Office documents from an iPad. First, using Office for iPad, save the document to your OneDrive or OneDrive for Business cloud storage.
Office Online: Opening a document stored in OneDrive using Safari
After editing your document in one of the Microsoft Office for iPad applications, open your document from your OneDrive or OneDrive for Business cloud storage using Office Online in your Safari browser. For demonstration purposes we're going to open the "Northwind Business Plan."
