Stick the text in a long lightly-shaded speech bubble. I believe word has
several as built-in shapes.

Hello All,
I am beginning a technical manual for a product that uses voice prompts to
program. So, the user will enter the programming mode, push a button and
hear two options. They push once or twice for the option choice.
Once selected a voice prompt verifies their choice and then moves onto the
next programming prompt.

In writing out the voice prompt, what do you use to define that this is the
voice prompt? You know, like italicizing the result of an action. Since this
is a technical manual, I think I'd like to stay away from quote marks.
