MacSpeech has released new . The new ScriptPaks install over 300 commands into iListen that allow the user to do virtually anything by voice in Mail and Safari they would normally do using keyboard shortcuts or menus. "We have been working hard to not only update our ScriptPaks for full Tiger compatibility, but to also add features that are most often requested by our customers," said MacSpeech Chief Evangelist Chuck Rogers. "Both the new Mail and Safari ScriptPaks are almost three times larger than our previous versions, giving iListen users unprecedented voice control of those applications."
The ScriptPaks for Mail 2.0 and Safari 2.0 are sold separately for $10 each and are available immediately from the MacSpeech online store. iListen 1.6.8 and Mac OS 10.4 ("Tiger") are required to use the new ScriptPaks.
ScriptPaks work with MacSpeech's flagship product, iListen, which features 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 starting at $100.
