Setting AppleScript variable to text of a cell Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next

I have a very simple question.

I am creating an AppleScript which will speak the text in the currently selected cell of OO Pro. However I can't figure out how to set a variable in the AppleScript to the text of the currently selected row :)

This for example:

tell application "OmniOutliner Professional"
	tell front document
		set x to text of selected row
	end tell
end tell
Doesn't work.

I know that the ability to speak the text of the currently selected cell is already built into OO P (Edit menu -> Speech -> Start Speaking) but I wish to perform some work on the text prior to speaking, substituting some words in the text, also I wish to be able to change the speed of the speech. So for these reasons I do wish to do this with an AppleScript.

Thank you for any help you can give.
