DTMF Dialing from LaunchBar

Post by xero » Tue Jun 24, 2008 5:01 pm

What would be very nice is the ability to have LB do DTMF dialing using the Macs speakers as an option in the prefs. I know you can use an AppleScript that will pass the phone number to a 3rd party application and then after it launches it will dial it. But that's just one more app that has to launch along with applescript getting fired up as well. I could usually dial number before the "dialer" app even launches.

Seems like a small amount of code to put into LB to make everyones life a little easier.

Sounds tremendously useful for some people, why don't you request it as a feature here?
The idea is really good, maybe one should also include the old way, what was it called, impulse dialing? Or is this not used anymore at all?

I use a utility called Dial!Fritz which works beautifully if you have a Fritz!Box router.

regards, and thanks for this cool idea,
