10.5: Create high-quality audio books
Authored by: alxalx on Nov 19, '07 12:52:09PM
A few tips:

1) If you want to save this Automator workflow as an application (so that you can drop your text file on it and have it automatically converted and added to iTunes) you need to add the following action at the beginning of the workflow: OPEN FINDER ITEMS (in the options choose: Open With Text Edit)

2) In the Import Audio File action, I also ticked "Delete Source after encoding" (this will remove the big .aiff file from your desktop).

3) If you want your converted audiofile to appear under the AUDIOBOOK section of your iTunes (and iPod) library, download and install the MAKE IT BOOKMARKABLE script.

Question: Does anybody know how to incorporate this script into the Automator workflow?
