If your computer has a sound card and a microphone, you can record voice comments to your documents in MS Word.

Voice comments are recordings that are attached to your document, and are are added as sound object inside comment balloons.

Follow the easy steps below to add voice comments to your documents:

  • Open the Reviewing toolbar if it isn't already open. To open the toolbar, right-click in a blank area of the visible toolbars and select the Reviewing toolbar.
  • Click the Insert Voice button.
  • If the Insert Voice button is not visible on the Reviewing toolbar, click Toolbar Options on the Reviewing toolbar, point to Add or Remove Buttons, point to Reviewing, and then click Insert Voice.
  • Record the voice comment.

Note: if MS Word displays a message asking whether you want to update the sound object, click Yes.
