Default Script to change Smart quotes to straight quotes for all users?

Does anyone know of a script or registry setting to change the quote setting
in Word to use straight quotes? I have an office of 75 users and need to
automate something to make the change firmwide.

Thanks,

Only if you have all the users pointing to the same Word startup folder when
you could add a global template containing the following macro

Sub AutoNew()
Options.AutoFormatAsYouTypeReplaceQuotes = True
End Sub

Otherwise you will have to change each user individually.
