In this video, you can learn how to enable Office sounds, audible cues that can be heard when working in any of the Office apps: when options change on screen, when dialog boxes open and close, when content is deleted, pasted, and so on. You can also learn how to change between sound schemes.
- [Instructor] Here in Office 2019, you can now enhance your productivity by enabling audible cues that let you know when options change on your screen, confirm actions like deleting content, pasting, even sending mail. You can be in any of the Office apps. When you go up to the File tab and select Options and select Ease of Access down the left-hand side, you'll see a checkbox to provide feedback with sound. Clicking this will enable it and you can choose from two different sound schemes.
There's modern and classic. Let's start with classic and click OK. Now as you start working in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, even Outlook, this feature has been turned on across all apps and things are going to start to happen audibly. For example, if I go up to Styles here in Word and open up the dialogue by clicking the expansion arrow, I hear an audible sound telling me something's opened up. When I close a dialogue like the Styles pane here, I hear another audible cue.
If I go into the word Connect, double click and delete it hitting my Delete key on the keyboard, I hear another audible cue. It sounds a little bit different. Clicking Undo or using Control + Z, brings it back and there's another cue. If we go back to File, down to Options, and select Ease of Access and change up the sound scheme to modern, we'll hear audible cues at the same moment as we did but different sounds.
Click OK. Now I'll delete this word again using my Delete key. That's a different sound, very faint. I'll Undo it clicking the Undo button. It comes back. Let's go back to Styles here and open up this dialogue and close it up, slightly different sounds. So, if you do wanna hear these audible cues, remember you can always turn this on in any of the apps. It'll be turned on across all apps.
If you don't want them, just go back to File, then Options, Ease of Access and deselect the checkbox. Remember to click OK to save those changes.
