Converting something that is printed into a message

August 22, 2008 | 5:40 pm

At the moment i have create a patch that tells me the date. I have used a select so that when the month comes up it changes it into and actual date. This is then packed together with the day number using the zl object and printed.

The thing im trying to do is take that grouped word that has been printed and send it as a message so that i can use the aka.object speech to say the date.

Sorry if this is a bit vague but is there anyway to do this

Thanks again

It’s easier to help if there is a patch or part thereof!!!

I don’t know the aka.speech object but I assume it will take an argument like [speak] followed by your string [August 22].
Since you already have a list coming out of your zl object all you should have to do is [prepend speak] (or whatever the proper argument is). Or you could use pack/pak/zl.
Hope that puts you on the right track.

I think [sprintf] might help you.
