Express Dictate Preferences


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

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">
<dict>
<key>Send/Default</key>
<string>0</string>
<key>SendTo1/FileNameFormat</key>
<string>%filename%</string>
<key>SendTo1/Folder</key>
<string>/path/to/folder</string>
<key>SendTo1/IsUsed</key>
<string>1</string>
<key>SendTo1/Name</key>
<string>Recipient Name</string>
<key>SendTo1/SendMethod</key>
<string>2</string>
</dict>
</plist>

 

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.
