Normal printers are black on white, are you saying yours are different to Normal?

PS a Printer cannot print White, it prints all other colours but white is the colour of the page if its white paper

If it's Word 2007 - Page layout, Background Colour, select white. Change the text colour to black. If it's not a Word document can you copy and paste into Word?

To select all text Ctrl+A.

Are the documents stored on a PC or are they physical documents?

If the latter, they can be scanned as jpegs and turned to a negative in a photo processing application.

If already stored as a file, then it should be possible to convert them to jpegs and treat them in the same way. Whether or not this is possible and how to achieve will depend on the file type.

I don't know which Program you are using but this should be similar in most.

Edit > Select all > Text Colour > Select Red > Click > Background Colour > select White > Text Colour > Select Black.

You do not really need to to change the text from White to Red to Black but it can be disconcerting to have a sheet that is all one colour.

The Select All bit is important as the Black Colour, of the Page, may be hiding undisclosed Text
