Using Voice Commands

If the microphone is not already in use, click the Microphone button on the Language bar to activate it. (If the Language bar isn't displayed, select Tools, Speech.)

Click the Voice Command button on the Language bar (or say “voice command”).

Say the name of the menu you want to open—for example, “Format.” Then say the name of the command you want to issue, such as “Cells.”

The Format Cells dialog box opens. Say the name of the tab you want to use, such as “Font.” Then, say the name of the option(s) you want to activate.

INTRODUCTION

You can use the Voice Command feature in Speech Recognition to select buttons from toolbars, commands from menus, options from dialog boxes, and even links on the task pane. This task will demonstrate using selection commands for a menu and dialog box; read the tips in this task for how to select toolbar buttons and links on a task pane.


TIP

Talking to the task pane

You can choose commands on a task pane by saying the full name of the desired link. For example, in the New Document task pane in Excel, you could say “From existing workbook” to create a new workbook from an existing workbook.


Say “OK” to process your commands, or “Cancel” to cancel them.

To turn off the Voice Command feature, click the Voice Command button.

To return dictating, click the Dictation button (or simply say “dictation”).

As you dictate, changes you made using the Voice Commands feature will be active. When finished, say “microphone” or click Microphone to turn it off.
