Create a shortcut to open the repobrowser at the repo url where the word
docs are stored:
TortoiseProc.exe /command:repobrowser

Now have your users use that shortcut to open the repo browser dialog.
Browse to the word doc you want, right-click, choose "Edit".

In the background, TSVN will check out a temp working copy with that
file, open it in the default application (in this case word) and wait
for that application to exit. So after editing the document in word and
word has exited, TSVN asks for the commit message and then commits that
document, and finally removes the temp working copy with that file.
