Speak new Mail notifications via a set of scripts
Authored by: zgafford on Mar 08, '05 03:15:50PM

I like the idea of it reading the names from address book but I only want to here the sender not the subject. Is there a way to easily change this?

Haven't looked at the scripts yet, but you can comment out the relevant "say" command by typing "--" at the beginning of the line in Script Editor.

Speak new Mail notifications via a set of scripts
Authored by: ephramz on Mar 08, '05 06:51:50PM
zgafford- ephramz here, the script writer. You could just put the line
			set theSubject to ""
before this line in the main script "Say Mail Threaded___ctl-z"
			-- determine if this is a reply
But this script is kind of overkill if you don't want to hear the subjects since that's what it's mainly set up to do. If you don't want the names taken from the address book, you can just use some of these earlier speaking mail script hints: here, here, and here,

You need edit the SayMailThreaded script with the Script Editor and modify it as show:


if msgReply then
set speechText to group & " reply from " & fromPerson
(*& " about " & theSubject*)
Put this part of line between Parenthesis and asterisc
else if aForward then
-- or if it's a forward
set speechText to group & "forward from " & fromPerson
(*& " about " & theSubject*)
Put this part of line between Parenthesis and asterisc
else
set speechText to "New " & group & " mail from " & fromPerson
(*& " about " & theSubject*)
Put this part of line between Parenthesis and asterisc
end if
