I can display an “Alert” but there is no associated sound.
The following was tested
- Sounds generated from a received email ok
- The “Settings | Scriptable | Allow scriptable to access” doesn’t show the “Sound” module (not sure if it should)
- The “Settings | Scriptable | Allow scriptable to access” shows “Notifications”
- Also no sound from a Scriptable “Notification”
Any help would be appreciated.
As far as I know, Alerts don’t make a sound in any app.
Notifications make no sound at default, but you can set what sound they make with
let n = new Notification();
n.sound = "alert";
You can find all the sounds in the documentation. Sadly because of restrictions from Apple it is not possible to assign a custom sound to notifications.
Just to clarify for others, the “Notification” only seems to respond to the “alert” sound.
There are more sounds than “alert”, but none are listed in the documentation… @simonbs I think this is a bug
The available sounds are:
Ouch - yes, that’s a mistake. Thanks for reporting it.
I have fixed the issue and the list of sounds will be included in the next update. For now, you can find the list in the updated online documentation.
