MacSpeech has released a new application, allowing the user to do virtually anything by voice in Final Draft 7 they would normally do using keyboard shortcuts or menus. "A ScriptPak for Final Draft 7 has been one of our most oft-requested ScriptPaks," said MacSpeech Chief Evangelist Chuck Rogers. "We are thrilled to offer the advanced ability to control Final Draft 7 with one's voice. This will help screenwriters using Final Draft become even more productive." The ScriptPak for Final Draft 7 is available immediately from the MacSpeech web site and sells for $30 and requires iListen 1.6.8 or later to use the new ScriptPak.
ScriptPaks work with MacSpeech's iListen, which offers TalkAnywhere technology to allow users to dictate anywhere they would normally type. ScriptPaks enhance iListen's Command & Control capabilities by teaching it about the individual keyboard and menu commands in a specific program. ScriptPaks only affect iListen's ability to control an application and are not required for dictation. MacSpeech offers several iListen packages, including a software-only solution for $100, and a software and headset with microphone for $150.
