Super Script for speaking
Authored by: Helios on Jan 17, '03 03:08:18PM

Okay I've been busy and I have made a script that extracts the Name of the person sending you an e-mail and then speaks it to you... also it fades itunes volume down and back up so you can hear it. It is capable of speaking with built in finder speech but if you edit a few tags it is also setup for speaking with the unix script './say' and with a program called 'Voice Box'

If you don't run itunes then this script will probably open itunes every time you get mail...
if you know basic scripting its easy to fix.

Its also setup to replace the spoken name of the sender...
e.g. the sender is mac@guru.com and you want it to just say "Guru"

Id insist at least basic understanding of applescript if you are to use this as I'm not very good at making my scripts work on other peoples computers.

I hope it works for you.

goto http://helios66.mine.nu/scripts/mail.scpt.sit

you can grab the unix script './say' at 'http://www.cis.rit.edu/~jerry/Software/MacOSX/#say'

send any feedback to helios11@maniac66.idps.co.uk
