WORD 2003 - sounds problem

  novis 20:41 06 Jul 2007


I downloaded a sounds add-in to Word 2003 that is now irritating the hell out of me. Everything now whishes and wooshes and I long for silence.

How do I turn it off, please?

1. Click the Assistant.

If the Office Assistant isn't visible, click Show the Office Assistant on the Help menu.
2. In the Office Assistant balloon, click Options.

If the Office Assistant balloon isn't visible, click the Assistant.
3. On the Options tab, clear the Make sounds check box.

In word, Excel, etc try Tools; Options; General and un-tick 'Provide feedback with sound'.

This applies to Office 2002. Hope it's the same for 2003!

Thuis seems to have done the trick. I was reluctant to download the Office Assstant because he has been such a nuisance in the past, always calling round when I was busy and never leaving until he was asked.

Thanks or the help.
