Text to Speech does not work on BlackBerry 8530

 

Hello,

 

I noticed the phone has Nuance speech synthesizer/recog, and I assume it has a text to speech ability. I was sucessful in making the text to speech work on the 8530 emulator. But when installing on the phone it didn't make a sound. No error, just no robot voice. Anyone able to share some insight, would be greatly appreciated.

 

I feel if RIM wants us to develop cool stuff, I would hope they could share or open these API docs relating to the developers at large. Such as abilitiies on the phone for Speech Recognition, TTS, etc.

 

Thanks,

 

Carl

Re: Text to Speech does not work on BlackBerry 8530

Right now there is no Speech APIs avalible for the BlackBerry unless you use the simulator.

 

If you copy the required *.cod files from the simulator to the phone and try to use them a dialog (at least for me) will actually pop-up and say that you don't have the rights to use the library. Keep your fingers crossed for OS/API 6.0 but there are no garentees even though many people want them.
