Hi,
That's because it checks to see if you are using a synthesizer at all. It's 
doing what it's supposed to do.

As far as I can determine, SpeechInUse does not work this way.

when I used this function I returned a value of 2 whether or not Jaws
was speaking.

If you did a while loop while speechInUse () the loop will not
terminate.  The only way I could get SpeechInUse to return false or zero
was to set my speech profile to no speech.

SpeechInUse() is the analogous JAWS function.
