Does anyone know how to create an applescript and then use it with the speech recognition technology, i.e. say its name and the script executes? I created the following applescript: and named it "Start chatting." I want it to open iChat if it is not already open, and set my status to available. The script works fine when I double-click it. I placed it in the directory ~/Library/Speech/Speakable Items. I know that speech recognition is turned on, and "Start chatting" even shows up in the speech commands window. However, whenever I say "Start chatting," nothing happens. I know that it recognizes what I say, because the little yellow rectangle appears above the speech window. If anyone could help me, that would be great. Thanks!
