Talk to me, Excel! 🙂
Yup, MS Excel can talk. In my case with a computer voice, which is close to a female one 🙂 How can you make use of it? I propose with a custom formula, which simply “reads” the content of the cell. The voice recognition is quite good, when you use it for numbers, but for words some improvement is still desirable in Excel 2010. Anyway, you may use it… Somehow, someday 🙂
Here comes the code of the custom function, which you should put in a VBA module:
Function sTalkToMe(sInsertString) As String
Dim sSpeaking As String
sSpeaking = "Look who is talking :)"
Application.Speech.Speak sInsertString, True
sTalkToMe = sSpeaking
