Lin-Z

don't put a space between command and the comma.


"Your command, line..."

Ohhhhhhhh, I guess I should pay closer attention when I copy/paste code.  All fixed.   :ugly:

OK....so how would one query if the user has the speakers mute set, turn the volume to high, and then return it back to the previous settings?

Here is a function version that makes it easier to use in programming.  For my *error* function, I included:
(SayIt "Houston, we have a problem!").  Have you tried numbers yet?  It's awesome!  You have to type in "inches" and "feet" etc.  I haven't tested it while a dialog is active, but I will tomorrow.
Code: [Select]
(defun SayIt (Phrase$ / Sapi)
  (setq Sapi (vlax-create-object "Sapi.SpVoice"))
  (vlax-invoke Sapi "Speak" Phrase$ 0)
  (vlax-release-object Sapi)
  (princ)
);defun SayIt

OK....so how would one query if the user has the speakers mute set, turn the volume to high, and then return it back to the previous settings?

Or how about turning the monitor off.

"This file will self destruct in 5 seconds." 
Then the monitor goes black
I + XI = X is true ...
... if you change your perspective.

Try this:
3102880657' 6 7/8"
with a space between the foot mark and the six and another between the six and the three.

Yes, or you can do that

Code: [Select]
(setq sh (vlax-create-object "shell.application")
(vlax-invoke sh 'ShutdownWindows)

Dear Patrick_35 and Readers,

Question,  can I also change the voice?

Yes, it's possible
An example to change the voice into French and on a female tone.

Dear Patrick_35 and Readers,

I can change the voice, but is this the right way.
Another question  (vlax-invoke sapi "Speak" "Do you want autocad speak with a soft volume" 0)
ends with a zero.
I hear no change when I change it.
