Tip 72: 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 Text to Speech tab of the Speech Properties
dialog box. You can adjust the speed and select a different voice (if other voices are installed). Click
the Preview Voice button to help make your choices.
