Kevin:
Thank you for your patience. I know that you have been trying to get this project together for as couple of weeks now. I did track down an article that I think should help you to get started.
I don't have mush experience with the speech API, but if you have any questions or problems after reading this article, feel free to post them here, and I or some of the other ranchers will gladly help out.

Did you add the ibmjs.jar file to your classpath? The javax.speech packages are located in that jar file (SUN does not distribute them independantly...), so you will need to add that JAR file to find the package.

Dear Joel McNary,
I only know the ibmjs.jar file is needed after you reminded me. I had downloaded the ibmjs.jar file but i don't know how to set the path and classpath. Can you please show me the direction??
Thank you very much!
Regards,
BLUR, BLUR!

Assuming that you are using Windows, you can adjust the PATH and CLASSPATH environment settings by right-clicking on "My Computer" on the Desktop, select "Properties", select the "Advanced" tab, and select the "Environment variables" button.
Then you can add and/or edit the settings.
Alternatively, you can specify the classpath with the -classpath switch when running the java program. Not that this will override, not augment, the system CLASSPATH setting.
You will only need to adjust the PATH if you do not want to place the DLLs in the System's PATH. You could just put them in the C:\Windows\System32 (or C:\WINNT\System32, depending on your system) folder.
Hope that this helps.

What error are you getting? Have you tried running the sample "Hello" program that cames with the distribution?

I'm not sure that this is your problem, but you should switch your CLASSPATH and PATH settings. The CLASSPATH should include the .jar file, while the PATH should include the lib directory.
Personally, I get a different set of errors:

I hanv't played around with the actual code, though, so I don't know what's causeing this one. I'll let you know when I find out. Maybe someone else knows?

Hi guyz,
Sorry for intercepting in clean discussion. Is there any ready-made Text-To-Speech [TTS] Engine from SUN? Like Microsoft Speech SDK.
Bye,
Viki.

I've used one called FreeTTS if that helps.. check it out in Google. It was pretty easy to get going.
Later
