Speech Object (Excel)

Contains methods and properties that pertain to speech.

Use the Speech property of the Application object to return a Speech object.

Once a Speech object is returned, you can use the Speak method of Speech object to play back the contents of a string. In the following example, Microsoft Excel plays back "Hello". This example assumes speech features have been installed on the host system.

Note Note

There is a speech feature in the setup tree that pertains to Dictation and Command & Control that does not have to be installed.

Sub UseSpeech() 
 Application.Speech.Speak "Hello" 
End Sub()
