The other day I met up with Andy Haslam of Omega One. I was introduce to Andy as a guy who we might team up with to build ActiveWords for Windows Mobile 5 smart phones. We had a great time talking, I learned a lot about the Windows Mobile 5 market, and as in all things, good stuff begins with a conversation.
Andy is looking at ActiveWords, and asked how we might script taking say a word, and instantly taking it to say Google News. I knew that we had the ability, but not sure how we did it.
Hence, I do what I normally do in cases like this, forward it on to the smart guys in our company who know our scripting language inside and out.
The net result is the resulting script.
Copy and paste it into the action field in the scripting portion of our Add Wizard, and name it.
Then, try typing say “Google” and trigger it, and the next thing you will see is the Google news result for Google. Works perfect. If you are using this type of tool, then it is easily to modify and edit the script so that you can use other search engines. Just change the link about to what you want to use.
