Add Voice Comments to Word Documents

Propellerhead Top Tip

If you use Microsoft Word then you may be aware of the Comment facility that lets you add helpful notes to your documents, but you may not have spotted a little extra facility Propellerhead has unearthed for embedding ‘spoken’ comments.

It’s really easy to do and all you need is a microphone connected to your PC. Open your document and click the mouse on the spot where you want the Comment to appear, now go to Insert > Comment and on the split frame toolbar that appears beneath your document, click the tape cassette icon. (In later versions of Word go to Insert > Comment and select Voice Comment from the drop-down menu). This opens the Windows Sound Recorder utility, click the Record button, say your piece and press Stop.

The voice comment will now appear in the document as a speaker icon or sound ‘object’ and clicking on it replays the recording. For hundreds more tips tweaks and some of the best freeware programs around visit PCTopTips
