MC442107: Microsoft Excel Online: Support for the Furigana (Phonetics) Feature

When this will happen

This feature is now available to users.

How this will affect your organization

When a user selects a range of cells, the furigana ribbon button will be available and will allow you to view existing furigana in cells and interact with them using the new ribbon commands. In addition, it will allow you to show or hide existing furigana and for Japanese it will allow you to choose the furigana type from several options (Hiragana, Katakana Half/Full). The phonetics button will show as disabled if there are no available phonetics in the selected range.

What you need to do to prepare

There is no action required from you at this time. We recommend updating any relevant training documentation as necessary.
