adjusting volume? -- Yes you can!
Authored by: ghoppe on Mar 09, '03 02:08:35AM

You can adjust the volume by changing this line:

tell application "Finder" to say "Mail from " & thisSender


tell application "Finder" to say "[[volm 0.7]] Mail from" & thisSender

Toy with the value 0.7 (0=silence, 1.0=max) until you find a volume you find reasonable. Instead, you could use + or - before the number to raise or lower the volume.

Apple has a list of embedded speech commands on their site.

For example, if you want your mac to speak rapidly you could:

tell application "Finder" to say "[[rate 300]] Mail from" & thisSender
