    Hello,
    I am new to Apple Scripts, but have a general idea of how to use them, especially in the OS environment. I have created a script so that a disabled student can use a voice command to open a powerpoint presentation (he says "open slideshow"). Now I want to write a script so that he can do another voice command in PowerPoint that will switch from design view to slide show view. How do I create a script once I'm within a program? I've tried recording the commands, but apple script doesn't seem to record commands within a program the same way it does for basic OS commands.

    Thanks for the help

    Rob

    It gives me the scripts, but I'd like to learn how to write or record a script for the task - cheaper too (I'm in a school)

    I think your problem isn't with AppleScript, but with Microsoft: Linkety
    (A bit old, but still applicable, if you're using v.X)

    AppleScript was revamped in 2004, but in 2008 it'll get much better:
