Express Dictate Preferences

Recommended Posts



I want to be able to automate setting up Express Dictate preferences, so that someone can install Express Dictate and then run a script or something and have the Sending preferences configured with some predefined settings.


I see these settings are stored in the user's "ByHost/com.NCH Swift Sound.ExpressDictate.XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX.plist" file.


I just need one File Copy recipient to be set up and the only things I want changed from the defaults are the destination folder and the file name format.


How do I go about doing this? I tried removing both plist files and then creating a ByHost plist file containing just the following (converted to the binary plist format):


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>Recipient Name</string>


but if I start up Express Dictate and look at the preferences, I see no recipients defined.


What exactly do I need to set?


Thanks in advance.
