Excel 2002

Like Access 2002, Excel 2002 ships with a number of features to integrate Excel files with FrontPage and with the Web in general.

Speech Recognition

Okay, it's not really about FrontPage or the Web, but Excel is one of the applications for which Microsoft Speech was tailor-made. Not only can you input data using dictation and control Excel's menu and toolbar commands using Voice Command mode, you can also have Excel read a selection of cells aloud to you to help you check the data for accuracy. Text-to-speech uses the standard computer voice (pioneered for personal computers way, way back on the original Commodore Amiga), so it's not exactly a joy to listen to, but for anyone who's ever tried to proofread large spreadsheets of data, having the computer read it can be invaluable. It can save you time, money, and headaches.
