tell application "Finder" to say "foo"

gives the following error message:

Finder got an error: "foo" doesn't understand the say message.

However,

say "foo"

works as expected. This is on 10.2.4.

But it works fine for me. Hmmm....

I used the original: tell application "Finder" to say "Mail from " & thisSender and it works fine for me (10.2.4). Why would AppleScript perform differently for different users?

I don't know, but I realized last night you don't need the "tell application 'Finder'" clause at all. say is in the "standard extensions" library, it's not part of the finder.
