Speech delay in Excel


David Hoff Jr
 

I have experienced a speech delay in Excel spreadsheets when using the
"#" sign.
--
A cell with the text of:
Member ID#: 1234567
will not delay, but speak immediateley.
<>
A cell with the text of:
Member #: 1234567
has a short delay before speaking the cell contents.

As I just cursored over the above I found that the same thing happens in
this email also. When this happens, it is possible to miss some
information that may be important. It seems that preceeding the "#" sign
with a charachor makes the diference.

Is this a bug or is there a reason for this?
