How to Get Audible Feedback in Excel

There are a few different ways that you can get audible feedback in Excel. One way is to use the built-in speech synthesis feature. To do this, go to the File menu, select Options, and then select Proofing. Under When correcting spelling in, select All new documents. Then, under AutoCorrect options, select the AutoFormat As You Type tab and check the box next to Play sounds for AutoCorrect actions. Now, every time you make a change that triggers an AutoCorrect action, you'll hear a sound.

Another way to get audible feedback in Excel is to use a macro. For example, you could create a macro that plays a sound when a cell's value changes. To do this, first record a macro that includes the following actions:

  • Select the cell that you want to monitor.

  • On the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Find & Select.

  • Click Go To Special.

  • In the Go To Special dialog box, click Current region, and then click OK.

  • On the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Listen To This Cell.

  • (Optional) To stop listening to the cell, on the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Listen To This Cell again.
