Executing Voice Commands

The two modes, Dictation and Voice Command, are mutually exclusive of one another. You do not want the word File typed, for example, when you are trying to open the File menu. Neither do you want the menu to open instead of the word File being typed when you are in the middle of a sentence . As such, you must manually click either mode on the Language bar to switch between them. The Voice Command mode allows you to talk your way through any sequence of menus or toolbar commands, simply by reading aloud the appropriate text instead of clicking it. For example, if you wanted to print the current selection of the workbook you are working on, you would simply say File, Print, Selection, OK (without saying the commas between the words as written here). You need not worry about remembering every command sequence because as you say each word in the sequence, the corresponding menu or submenu appears onscreen for your reference.

Execute Voice Commands


If necessary, display the Language bar.


Click the Microphone button on the Language bar. The toolbar expands so that the Voice Command button becomes available on the toolbar.


Click the Voice Command button to shift into that mode.


Work with your Office document normally. When you are ready to issue a command, simply speak the sequence just as you would click through it if you were using the menus or toolbar normally (ie. with the mouse or via keyboard shortcuts).


Did You Know?

You can have text read back to you . Display the Speak Text button on the Language bar. Select the text you want read back to you, and then click Speak Text.
