DesktopWeb FormText   CF using Speech Server for TTSTue, 27 Jul 2004 17:58:56 GMT # 

this is a little hack i dreamed up at MobileDevCon, and i just now got around to building. it involves doing text-to-speech (TTS) in a compact framework (CF) app using Speech Server. all i did is create a speech-enabled web page that will speak whatever you pass as a query string. then i created a compact framework app with a hidden WebBrowser control. whenever you want the app to speak, all you do is pass the query string'd url to the web browser. it loads the page, then gets speech server to do the TTS, and then the web browser plays the prompt using the PIE speech add-in. it would take a little work, but i think this could also be modified to use Speech Server to do speech recognition for CF. kind of cool
