You can certainly use AppleScript to ask the Finder to create an
alias for you:
tell application "Finder"
make new alias to <something> at <location>
...but setting it to be invisible is another story. Finder can't
help you there, though there may be some other way to do it using
If the Developer Tools are installed, the /Developer/Tools/SetFile
tool can make an item invisible.

Ok, so the speech recognizer knows which application to target in
Application Speakable Items because there's an invisible alias in
each of the application specific folders. The question of the day:
how can that alias be created with a CLI command or using AppleScript?
Apparently older versions of Word (v.X SR1) don't trigger the
automatic creation of the folder when speech is turned on. I need
to create the alias manually. I've seen the c header file somewhere
in the dev docs, but I don't speak c, so I need to have it dumbed
down for me...
