Interesting graphics and illustrations can help bring to life an otherwise dull Microsoft Word document. One way of brightening up a boring block of text is to insert a word- or speech-bubble shape. Word comes with a range of different shape illustrations, and you'll find a selection of speech bubbles listed under Callouts in the shape-picker tool on the Insert tab on the main program menu. Once you've added a word bubble to the document, you can add text to it.
