Then a new window will open.
Click on "Customize Ribbon".
Click on the small "drop down arrow", VBA programmers call it combo box. Android programmers call it spinner. Anyway, whatever its called just click on it and select "All Commands".
After selecting "All Commands" drag the small "rectangle" until you find the word "Speak".
When you find the word "Speak", click on it. And upon clicking on it, the "Add" button will be enabled.
Don't click the "Add" button first, if you click on it Word will throw an error "Commands can only be added to custom groups".
The error has already given a clue that to add a custom ribbon, you need to add a custom group.
Select the "Main User" tab and click on "New Group".
After clicking on "New Group" right click on the newly added group. To rename the group to something else. Name the group according to its function, it would make sense to name it according to its usage.
A new window will pop up, type the name of the group and click on "OK".
After clicking "OK", click the "OK" button once more and the "Speak" option is already added.
Click on "OK" button to exit from the Word options.
And now the moment of truth, type anything on the word document .
After typing highlight what you type and click on the "Speak" button on the upper left corner.
But of course make sure speaker is ON and volume is not muted.
