Fun Legacy AppleScript Volume param I never knew about…

Recently I wanted to adjust the Volume of the AppleScript say command. I found this...

This is actually using the say Unix utility, via an AppleScript do shell script.

If you do want to do this directly in AppleScript, just include a volume parameter, eg:

say "Hello dealtek!" volume 0.5

Check the Standard Additions dictionary with your favourite AS editor and you'll see you can also change the voice, adjust speed and pitch, etc.
