    Text to speech toolbar (2003)

    Trying to use the text to speech toolbar in Excel 2003. When displaying the toolbar View, Toolbars, Text to speech - the toolbar appears but is greyed out. Pc will play sounds (checked hardware, no conflicts). Any ideas please?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    I might well be wrong, but I suspect that this feature might only be enabled in US English. It's disabled on my PC (using Dutch) too.

    Thanks Hans. It is a great forum isn't it. This is my first post.

    I have checked and the setting is on English (UK) on my pc - but it works ok on (US) or (UK). Shame about the Netherlands though!

    Any other ideas.

    I haven't been able to find anything relevant on Google or in the newsgroups, but hopefully someone else will chime in with a useful suggestion.
