I use Voice Over and Dragon Dictate. I have figured out how to make Dragon Dictate press Control-Option-A, which makes Voice Over read a page of text, and now I would like to figure out how to tell Voice Over to stop reading through Dragon Dictate. The trouble is that the Voice Over keystroke is just Control. I have never been able to find any AppleScript key code for this.
On the same note, whenever I read about keystrokes in AppleScript, I get the impression that I'm always expected to press some other key along with the control, the command or the option modifier key. But what if I just want to press one modifier key through a program like Dragon Dictate?
