This includes:

• Foreground or background colors
• Indented text

Choose from existing schemes or create your own scheme for further customization.

To select a scheme, do the following:

1. Press INSERT+ALT+S to access the Speech and Sounds Schemes dialog box.

2. Press the UP ARROW key or DOWN ARROW key to navigate the list of available schemes.

3. To select a scheme, press ENTER.
