Can audacity send audio to my flex for direct broadcast?

I want to set up Audacity to send my CQ call with the push of a button.  Is this possible?
Me doing it the old-fashioned way over and over is fine but, not wearing my voice out with calling CQ all night long would be kinda handy.

If not Audacity, perhaps another method that someone might be able to suggest?

Audacity can do it but it's better if you use a DVK software like K9DUR Voicekeyer

However if you want to do it in audacity set the output device to DAX audio TX, and make sure DAX is enabled in the TX panel. You need to press MOX to initiate transmit, then press play in audacity. What a pain in the neck! Better to use Ray's software above...

It can work on any radio with a sound card interface (DAX) and PTT.

I just downloaded VoiceKeyer, at a glance that looks to be a pretty darned handy piece of software. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  Rick K5RHA

Or you can setup N1MM+ with your CQ call and do everything from the logger.

The neat thing with N1MM is you can set up voice for different contests, or even give numbered exchanges.Even folders for different operators voices. I don't use the incremental numerical changes, but after a long contest it  is nice to have a voice left.

For those who run a Mac, use the voice keyer builtin macloggerdx and It has its own recorder too.  You will need to also run xDax and xCat and loopback software to get audio path to the flex.   Also you can setup up keyboard short cuts too.

If you are using an M model flex you do not need to run dogparksdr as xDax and xCat make the connections to the radio

here is screen shot of my setup

A quick easy way to send a CQ is to use the slice recorder, red button, to record your CQ, and then each time you click the Green button on the slice it will announce your CQ message and if you  have the radio on VOX it will key the radio and go out.

I personally use n1mm, but find not having a voice keyer inside smartsdr a weakness of the ecosystem.

I agree Salvador as you could use Flexcontrol to sent the info which always has focus on controlling the flex.
