Hello all,

First, this program is excellent. I thank the creators for it.

I'm trying write an Applscript that will execute a phone call through VoiceMac. It doesn't need any bells and whistles. I just want to write the phone number into the script and have the phone call be placed.

I'm no programmer, but I'm thinking something like:

tell application "VoiceMac"
end tell

but that doesn't work. anyone have any suggestion as to how I can make this happen? Thank you in advance.

There has been previous threads and it comes to be...

open location "tel://" & "+18005555555"

I am using FileMaker Pro 12 and have a script that has a callto go to URL step. it works great. The VoiceMac screen is initiated with the options to call, send sms or cancel (with the proper phone number and google voice account. Is there a way (maybe through applescript) to tell application voiceMac to choose the call option? I want to be able to click the call button in Fielmaker and have it dial automatically without having to push the call button.

According to source code, there is 3 different types of scheme's available.

The scheme's tel, callto, telephone, phone, and phonenumber will bring up that multi choice dialog.
The scheme call will directly call the phone number.
The scheme sms will popup a SMS window for that phone number.
