Poor-man's AppleScript vocalizer
Authored by: NovaScotian on Jun 13, '11 08:26:08AM

A nice addition to any AppleScript that requires a returned answer is to put a return in the default answer (just type the key). That will make the answer box 2 lines high and an answer longer than the text box will return to a second line.

display dialog "Type something longer than the box" default answer "
-- note the return between the quotes following default answer. That way, your to be voiced text can be quite long without its scrolling off to the left.
