Voice Recognition/Synthesis?

Hello,

 

Could someone tell me whether it is feasible for a BB application developer to access the voice recognition/speech synthesis engine in BB's which are equipped with that capability, e.g. my 9000?  I have an application I wrote for Windows 7 which uses VR & TTS through calls to the SAPI library.  It was surprisingly easy to implement.  However, the app would be much more useful on a smart phone.  Is there a similar library accessible on the BB?  Could not seem to find any documentation if there is.  A link to such documentation would be extremely helpful.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Just use the Google API for ASR.

The company that does the iSpeech applications also has a freely available API to use, though I haven't tried it myself and can't comment to the usefulness of it.
