Please make the MS Office TTS service 'Read Aloud' and icon standard across suites
Please make the TTS service 'Read Aloud' & the accompanying icon the standard for MS Office suites. I've only just found the PowerPoint & Excel 'Speak' function and it's not as good. I haven't found any info on hotkeys to be able to toggle the TTS speak and pause yet for PP & Excel which is a shame. If you can also add in the 'screen masking' from 'Focus assist' that would be awesome. Another thing is you should get some inspiration from 'Texthelp' they have a tonne of features in their software but it's not reliable.... Something that would be incredible is if the Read Aloud can highlight words as they are spoken in high contrast or customisable solid background colour as it's being spoken.
Where did you find the PowerPoint 'Speak' function?
