Question vba to un-mute pc audio.

I have several applications that have Excel Application.Speech. However, there is 1 user that keeps his PC muted. I am trying to use VBA to un-mute the audio if it is muted. I have found this code that un-mutes, & torments the user.
Option Explicit

#If VBA7 Then
    Private Declare PtrSafe Sub keybd_event Lib "user32" (ByVal bVk As Byte, ByVal bScan As Byte, ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)
    Private Declare Sub keybd_event Lib "user32" (ByVal bVk As Byte, ByVal bScan As Byte, ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)
#End If

Sub VolUp()
   keybd_event VK_VOLUME_UP, 0, 1, 0
   keybd_event VK_VOLUME_UP, 0, 3, 0
End Sub

Sub VolDown()
   keybd_event VK_VOLUME_DOWN, 0, 1, 0
   keybd_event VK_VOLUME_DOWN, 0, 3, 0
End Sub

Sub VolToggle()
   keybd_event VK_VOLUME_MUTE, 0, 1, 0
End Sub
I don't want to torment, just un-mute. I thought I would place the un-mute code, right before Application.speech runs. I have not been successful with my attempts. Is what6 I am asking possible?
