Microsoft Office 2016 365 for Mac. Forget fussing with updates with this one-year subscription of Microsoft Office 2016 365 for Mac. This computer-, tablet- and smartphone-friendly Office 365 for Mac suite contains Office 2016 versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook that work on your OS X machine, iPhone or iPad (Outlook 2016 is not compatible with iPhone).

Microsoft Office can read aloud, talk or speak the text of documents to you. It’s possible in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote. Computer speaking text is mainly suggested for various disabled users under the ‘Accessibility’ name. But ‘Speak’ is also useful if you’re just tired of reading the screen or are proof-reading from another document. Officially it’s called TTS ‘text-to-speech’ and is part of Windows.

Office makes use of that Windows sub-system. Configuration of the Speak/Read feature is done in Windows, as we’ll see below. Word 2016 for Windows has two similar features. Speak – has been in the last few versions of Word for Windows. Read Aloud – is a new, improved version of Speak available in the most recent Word 2016 releases (as usual, Office 365 subscribers only). Office for Mac has a Read/Speak option.

Rather, the macOS has a speech feature which can be used in Office. See Vice-versa, Speech to Text Converting what you say into text is also possible in Office – see the new add-in for Office 2013 and Office 2016. Word Speak Let’s look at ‘Speak’ first since it’s been in Word for some time. It’s also the same basis as ‘Read Aloud’.

You’ll find Speak on the ‘Commands not on the Ribbon’ list. The easiest choice is adding it to the Quick Access Toolbar. Now it’s on the QAT, select some text and click the Speak button. A somewhat mechanical voice will talk to you. If there’s no selection, Speak will say the current word at the cursor. Changing Voices The controls for Speak or Read Aloud are in Windows Control Panel Speech Recognition Text to Speech. Voice Selection – the English language options are ‘David’ or ‘Zira’ – male or female.

Preview Voice – click to hear the current voice. Voice speed – faster or slower than the Normal setting. Read Aloud Read Aloud is much the same as Speak. It’s the same voice selection and settings in Windows. What’s different aside from the name and a fresh round of Microsoft hype?

Essentially, it’s an improved interface for Speak. ‘Read Aloud’ is promoted to the Review tab. If it’s not there, add it to the Quick Access Toolbar, as shown for ‘Speak’ above.

I have added custom field to estimate/quote, and it had been mapped correctly, however custom field numbers (such as PO) does not show up in print preview custom field does not show up in print preview for estimate.

You might have Updated to QB 2016, but you apparently Downgraded your program Edition from Premier to Pro. Please see my screenshots. Adding the vendor information to the QuickBooks purchase order Within the vendor file, the phone number and contact information can not be pointed to a purchase order for printing. A: If you’ve entered a purchase order for a vendor, when you use the vendor on a check or bill you’ll get a popup message asking if it’s for a purchase order. Select the purchase order from the list. The purpose of recording a purchase order into QuickBooks is to create a formal record of a purchase. You almost always will want to transmit this purchase order to the vendor. The purchase order tells the vendor exactly what you want to purchase and the price that you are willing to pay. To print the purchase order, you can click the Print button.

Click on Read Aloud and Windows/Word will start speaking the text from the cursor onwards. New in Read Aloud is a little control panel on the top right of the document window. Back – jumps back to the start of the current or previous paragraph.

Play / Pause Forward – goes forward a paragraph. Settings – change the reading speed and voice without switching to Windows. Shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + Space will start or close Read Aloud. We can’t find a keyboard shortcut to pause / play the talk. That seems like an obvious, if not essential, part of the feature. Read Aloud in Read Mode In Read Mode, Read Aloud is available from the bottom of the View menu.

Read Aloud spelling suggestions Text to Speech is also available in other parts of Word 2016 for Windows (Office 365 subscribers). One of the extended spell check right-click options is ‘Read Aloud’ to speak the suggested word.
