I'm trying to see if there is a tool in word that will narrate what you type?

Basically, have word read back to you what you've typed or someone else typed

in a document. Sort of like the "narrator" in windows for the disabled.

      For versions up to Word 2003, see

      http://www.gmayor.com/word_text_to_speech.htm.

      It has been removed from Office 2007 and moved to the Vista operating

      system.

    • I am not running Word 2007, but feedback to my web site suggests that the

      function described there can still work with 2007. Whether this is only true

      of a system 'upgraded' from Word 2003 I cannot say.

    • Hi Graham,

      Yes, Speech to Text (Dictation) was removed from Office 2007 but Excel's Text to Speech (Speak) is still there (although moved to

      the items you have to manually add to the QAT).

      I suspect that there was enough clamor to keep it that it stayed in, but that by moving it to a five item QAT 'add' that MS will be

      able to show the "SQM" data next time to 'prove' it's not needed <g>.
