Proofing Your Data with Audio
Some people (myself included) find the voice in this “love it or hate it” feature much too
annoying to use for any extended period. And, if you enter the data at a relatively rapid clip, the voice
simply cannot keep up with you.
You have a small bit of control over the voice used in the Excel text-to-speech feature. To adjust
the voice, open the Windows Control Panel and display the Speech Properties dialog box (see
Figure 38-2). You can choose a different voice and also adjust the speed. Click the Preview Voice
button to help make your choices.
