Terry-I do not believe that we have a playback utility available when using
the Vista SR. I've reviewed all of the training materials that we have put
together, including all of the commands made available by Microsoft to this
point and I don't see anything referencing playback capabilities. They are
in the process of making a new macro utility available that might hold some
promise for writing a snippet of code that would allow for playback -ed.

Does anyone have recommendations for how to gracefully ask Vista Speech
Recognition to read text back after dictating? As far as I've been able to
find, there's no equivalent to the "Read that" command in Dragon Naturally
Speaking. The only strategy I've come up with is to launch Narrator and try
to get it to read selected text in the word processing application, but this
is a complicated and clunky process involving many voice commands.

Thanks for any tips,
