Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you know I've put together a release of my JSpeechLib 
  library for Mac OS 9.X

http://pixel.recoil.org/java/jspeechlib/Readme.html


This library implements the synthesis portion of JSAPI 1.0 on Mac OS 
using the Speech Manager (aka MacInTalk) which is included in all modern 
Mac OS 8 & 9 releases. The page above has very complete release notes.

There's also a lower level API (called JSpeechLib) which strongly 
resembles the native Mac Speech Manager's C API but expressed in Java. 
Some Mac people may prefer to use this.

Requirements: known to work with Mac OS 9.X & MRJ 2.2. Previously known 
to work with Mac OS 8.X and MRJ 2.1, but your mileage may vary.

License: LGPL - source is therefore available. n.b. the LGPL is not the 
same as the GPL, this code can be used in some closed source products. 
See the included copy of the LGPL for details.

Mac OS X support: not yet! What a fabulous idea. Want to help?

None of this would have been possible without the work done by Brendan 
Burns, and the help I've received over the years from Patrick Beard, 
Jens Alfke and Nick Kledzik.
