A sample of my notification automator

Here is an audio sample. I just quickly recorded it on my phone. So quality isn’t as good as usual. Also her narration of the traffic status needs work.  I also just noticed she is getting day and month backwards.  I need to fix that in the parsing code.

  1. Very nice application of AirFoil! Only one question. How in the world did you get say to pipe to your speakers via Applescript? I can’t seem to get Applescript to grab the "System Audio" so that Alex gives me the weather in the kitchen. Any suggestions?

They have sample scripts o<span class="Apple-style-span" style="-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.296875); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469); ">n their site.&nbsp;</span></div><div><br></div><div></div><blockquote type="cite"><div> <div style="width: 600px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 18px;" class="PosterousEmail"></div></div></body></html>

  3. Yep, I am scouring that site and am using AirFoil. Can’t seem to get "System Audio" to pass to the express. I can grab iTunes and Quick Time and other apps, just can’t hijack system audio. I wonder if it’s because I have Voice Over on. Can’t turn it off though, i’m blind. Gonna write to RA and see if this is the case. Thx.
