I forgot to say that this is on a Windows PC (8.1)
Yes - there is a custom voice - and it works in 'Windows'. But I cannot make MS Word use it - it uses the standard voice. This is the question - how to make MS Word use the voice I have set in the Windows Control settings
I will try in 30 minutes and get back to you. Curious that I can find no way in Word to 'decide' the voice I want to use.
Have restarted PC but MS Word (latest version) is still using the default Windows voice - not the custom voice showing in the control panel as the default voice.
There must be a way in Word to choose the voice?
1) Ensure MS Word 2013 is using the Windows System Voice (a custom voice which I have managed to make work in Windows, but no in MS Word)
2) Create a Macro such that when you hit the Enter (Return) key, it not only goes to the next line, but also runs a Macro.
3) This Macro 'speaks' (Text To Speech or TTS) the last typed sentence (not all the text)
4) Two other simpler Macros : 1) repeat the last sentence 2) save without further dialogue windows to a specific location.
What think ye? I can give you a phone number if you prefer?
ModelTalker - it works when you fiddle with Control Panels/Ease of Use etc.
Good advice - I will. But if you are still interested, could you propose and make work an alternative to Word?
This is for a user who is losing the ability to speak - but can still type fast.
Therefore ANY text editor would work - on condition that it can use the System Voice, and that you can create Macros.
Thanks - there is a lot more work behind this (eg.eye movement control)
Sorry - but none of this works. After I press the Windows Key and then Enter, suddenly the window becomes very large.
I am spending so much time with various people all giving advice in words, when what I really want is someone to actually do it on my PC. I have a Screen Video recording app which I could switch on - nothing would need to be written down as I would have a recording of the complete sequence of steps required.
Can I not just pay you for 1 hour of your time whilst you 'have a go' on my PC via Teamviewer?
If you cannot do this - do you know of anyone who could?
I there an easier way to communicate than all this typing? My phone number is +33###-##-####or I am happy to call you on Skype, landline or mobile
I keep getting emails - I click reply - I scroll down to bottom of page - there is no new text . This is such a tedious way of communicating. Did you receive my team viewer details?
Is something happening? Are you connecting?
I have done all this already! It is running'
Here are the details again
Everything you do is using the customised voice to speak the action
I am getting deluged with emails, the Teamviewer text box does not work, what are you doing - should I do something?

Is there no easier way to communicate than this - this is awful
I have no idea what you are doing - please stop so we can talk
Teamviewer text box does not work, and even if it did - the text is so small I can barely read it.
I want an easier way to communicate - this is hopeless
