You have to download a sounds.exe from Microsoft to make this work.

I like the sounds that it uses, it just gives you confermation as to what

Have a good day.

These sounds are enabled by turning on the Office Sounds. In Word, go to
the File menu, then options. When the dialog opens, arrow down to the Ease
of Access options, then tab over to where all the setting choices are. The
first option is a checkbox to enable the sounds.
Check if this got turned off somehow.
I just started using this feature and am still not sure what all the sounds
mean, but kind of like it. I will note that, from my little test, I only
get the sound if I select some text and then hit delete, but not if I delete
character by character.
