Hello Jay,
I don't know if it is possible, or if it is legal, or if it is
documented, but is it possible to do a synthezizer driver for jaws
which uses SSIP to output sound? This way one can set the jfw
synthezizer to send sounds to a SSIP server running remotely and one
can have output speech from a remote machine this way ..

> 4. The DotNet directory under Clients contains the SSIPClient.dll
> assembly, a copy of the web documentation file, and both source and
> executable code for a sample program called SSIPClientDemo.
> 5. While the java directory under Clients contains the wrapper,
> SSIPClient1.0.jar, the sample class is not included

> documentation on the web page and can include the jar in your projects

> be used with java 1.4 or higher.
> 6. The server can run in 2 different modes; normal and debug. In normal

> tray icon is shown. Selecting the tray icon allows you to either open
> the SSIP monitor console window or shut down the server. When started in
> debug mode, another option on the SSIP for windows group added to
> Start/All Programs, the monitor window is opened automatically. This
> window allows you to see when client applications connect to the server
> and what request/response strings are passed. Within the monitor window,
> you have buttons to clear the console text or shut down the SSIP server.
> 7. I have noticed that, from time to time, I have lost the system tray
