Change the Narrator voice

You can change the speed, volume, and pitch of the voice Narrator uses.

  1. Open Narrator by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking Narrator.

  2. Click Voice Settings, and then make any of the following adjustments:

    • To select a different voice, click the voice you want to use in the Select Voice box.

    • For a faster voice, select a number in the Set Speed list. The higher the number, the faster the voice.

    • For a louder voice, select a number in the Set Volume list. The higher the number, the louder the voice.

    • For a higher-pitched voice, select a number in the Set Pitch list. The higher the number, the higher the pitch. A higher-pitched voice can make the voice easier for some people to hear.

Narrator is not available in all languages, so if the steps above do not work, Narrator is not available for your language.
