NAME

audiosend - Send an audio email message  

SYNOPSIS

audiosend [addr]
 

DESCRIPTION

The audiosend program will allow a user on a properly-equipped workstation to send an audio fragment as electronic mail. If an argument is provided, it will be used as the To address. Otherwise, the user will be asked to provide the To address. In any event, the user will be prompted for the Subject and CC fields. Audiosend will then let the user record his message. Afterwards, the user will be given the options of delivering the mail, listening to the message, re-recording the message, or aborting.  

ENVIRONMENT

The RECORD_AUDIO environment variable can be set to the name of a program that records audio, sending the digital audio to standard output.
