One of the feature in Voice Candy is the ability to add custom AppleScript actions to interact with different applications. One action that I think Voice Candy users might find handy is an action to send email with the recording in MP3 format. Currently, Voice Candy only records to the QuickTime movie format and so the "Send Email" action sends the recording as a .mov file which might not be accessible for recipients on PCs without QuickTime installed.
So, in this post I would like to show you a way to send emails with MP3 recordings by using an AppleScript action.
First, you need to download the following AppleScript file:
Once you have the file, open Voice Candy's actions preference:
Hit the "Add Action" button and you will be presented with the following sheet:
Hit the "Choose AppleScript..." button and select the AppleScript file that you have just downloaded.
Enter the name for this action and hit "Save".
You will now notice that a new action "Email as MP3" is available from the list of actions:
Now record something then perform the "Email as MP3" action. Tada:
Hope you find this post useful. Best wishes in the year 2007.
You can also make a slight modification to the script file to perform different operations such as saving to Desktop:
