Is it possible to write a macro for multiple files?

So I have just gotten voicebot and I'm loving it, but I want to be able to open files. I don't, however, want to make a new macro for every file on my computer, so this is my question:

Is it possible to have one command that can open multiple files?

For example for all of my word docs, I can say "Let's write" + name of file. So "Let's write Twilight Redux." I know that voicebot does this as a program already, but I want to know if I can make a single macro that can then search a smaller list of options?

This can be done using Macro Scripts, I will assign this over to a dev here that can help out, though he is on vacation at the moment, so it'll be a week or so before he's able to get to it.

Hi, just a quick questions so I can go about creating a Macro Script for you. What would you like it to do exactly? Open every file in a directory? Any information would help me make a script that will work for you

I think what he's trying to accomplish is have voicebot interpret what he's saying "Let's open starcraft doc.docx", and it's open "starcraft doc.docx', but he's wanting to know if voicebot can possibly perform speech to text translation.

i.e. have a macro/action that is called "let's open".
In there is listens for what follows (in this case, the user says "starcraft doc.docx"., os the script then searches a specific [read: predefined] folder for the document that matches all words after "let's open".

instead of having multiple macro's, Each specifically configured to open their related filename, e.g.
. . Let's open starcraft.docx
. . Let's open arma2.docx
. . Let's open minecraft.docx
. . Let's open lode runner.docx

He wants a single macro that will take the words after 'lets open' and open it. so.. yeah, speech-to-text interpreter.
This would be awesome, actually. I could find a number of uses for something like this too.
