Using Excel and suddenly the Speak Cells function (which I didn't know existed) started functioning. I got the "Stop Speak Cells" icon added to my Quick Access toolbar but clicking it has no effect. Any help appreciated.

 

Respectfully,

Does it speak when you input something in a cell and hit Enter?

If that's the case, go to Customize Quick Access Toolbar --> Choose All Commands from the Choose commands from dropdown --> scroll down to find Speak Cells on Enter, select it and click on Add, click OK to finish.

Now on the QAT, you will find it activated, click on it again to stop it.

 

Once it is stopped, you can right click on it and choose Remove from Quick Access Toolbar.
