Automatically accept all changes, delete all comments and switch off Track Changes in MS Word

We have a writer writing in articles for us and then someone else is commenting on the articles and doing deletions in the word documents and the changes are also being tracked because change tracking is enabled. But when everything is done we will need to open each document, accept all changes, delete all coments, and switch off Track changes. And we will do this each time on every document. Is there a way to do these actions:

1. Accept all changes
2. Delete all coments
3. Swithc off Track changes.

in Batch so that we do not need to do these one by one. It may be a macro (Please teach me how to use it if it is a macro because I really do not know macro) or a VB executable script so that all actions mentioned above can be automatically done without opening the word files individually.
