I'm working on some specific software for car drivers.
How to get access to TextToSpeech API? This API works on simulator, but not in real device -- signature required.
I have signature files received from RIM, but this is not enough to sign TTS code.
How to request it?

I would like to know as well.

I've been looking for a good API for this, too! I actually just spoke to someone at RIM about this yesterday.
The RTTS key is accessible internally to RIM only. The will not allow public use of it. He stated that if my app needed to be signed by the RTTS key, then I could never run it on an actual device.
Supposedly, tho, they have public "versions" of their TTS apis that they can give out in "some cases". I asked what those were but have not received any reply. I'll let you guys know of anything else I find out.
iSpeech has a free & a paid api available to use, but it's a web accessible api, wherein you have to send a request over the internet in order to translate it to speech. (http://www.ispeech.org/API) So... that's not usable for my purposes, but one of you might still find it handy.

I wonder if that has something to do with the fact that they use Nuance for speech recognition (and probably synthesis).
Either way it's good to see that you got a response from RIM.
