Title: notify(), speak(), twitter()
Post by Mark Bernstein on Oct 1st, 2014, 12:07pm

I've not seen much mention of these new Tinderbox Six features.  I expect they have some intriguing uses; I'd like to hear about those.

notify("title","subtitle",[date]) posts a notification to your notification center.  For example, an agentís OnAdd action might be

      notify("Overdue book!",$Name)

twitter(screen_name,status) is nearly self-explanatory. This used to be tricky; now, it's easy. (Your screen name must be registered first in System Preferences:Internet Accounts)

$Text.speak() will speak the text (or any other string you like).

$Text.speak("Tessa") speaks the text in a specific voice. (The new voices in Mavericks are surprisingly good!)

This "speak" feature is fun! I have set up the voice as "Fiona," in tribute to my Scottish relatives' try for independence last week.
