Hi, Im trying to get a sample piece of code up and running using the Java Speech API, I have tried many different tutorials, all are the same basic contents... in the Main method, a synthesizer is created and allocated...
Synthesizer synth = Central.createSynthesizer(
new SynthesizerModeDesc(Locale.ENGLISH));
synth.allocate();
synth.resume();

Than when the speech is done, it is deallocated()

My code compiles fine, but when I try to run it, it has problems with the allocation and deallocation, it gives me a NullPointerException.

I have looked at many different tutorials, they all compile fine, and then when I run them I get the same error.
How can I make it work?!!
Any thoughts?
Im really stuck on this.....
Thanks,
O(n).

A NullPointerException is a RuntimeException, meaning the compiler won't find it for you. Somewhere in your code, and the examples, it is trying to use a null object, hence the exception. Other than that, I am sorry to say that I cannot help much because I am not familiar with JavaSpeech.
