    Issue: After I issue a Speak command I turn off the cast service in order to be able to send to a different device. To do this I currently have to put the shutdown command at the start of the task which then leaves the cast service up and running on the phone. I would much prefer to turn the service off after the Speak command completes. If I place it after, it executes to quickly and causes the Speak not to occur on the target device. I can add a wait delay, lets say 10 seconds, then shut down the service but there is no real way to know how long to wait and it also creates an issue if another Speak command is issued while the wait is counting down.
    Annoyance: The boink sound that occurs when the service connects is annoying
    So the next time you are updating AutoCast could you add an:
    1) option to delay execution of next task until "Speak" is completed?
    2) option to turn "boink" off when it connects? (great for testing, not so great for daily use)
    Thanks for considering!

    The "boink" I can't control sorry! :)
    I'll add waiting for the speak action to complete to my todo list, thanks!
