Excel - Speak on Enter


I am running the latest version of Microsoft 365 Excel. Some how the “Speak on Enter” option is enabled. I tried to follow the customize ribbon instructions to add “Speak on Enter” to the menu to disable it, but the command is NOT in the list of All Commands. Any advice?

You can do the following:

  • Press Alt+F11 to activate the Visual Basic Editor.
  • Press Ctrl+G to activate the Immediate window.
  • Type or copy/paste the following line into the Immediate window:

Application.Speech.SpeakCellOnEnter = False


  • With the insertion point anywhere in that line, press Enter.
  • Close the Visual Basic Editor.

Speak  on Enter should now be disabled.

@hans, Thank you!! Your suggestion worked perfectly!

@Hans Vogelaar Brilliant! Was pulling my hair out on this one for about an hour. Thanks so much!
