I may not be remembering this correctly. I thought that you could make 
jfwapi.dll run a JAWS script or function. If you can run a function, you may be 
able to get a return code back from it. If I had the scripting reference here, 
I'd look up some candidate function names and send them to you. Sorry about

Might it be possible to do two checks?  First is if the sound card or
other synthesizer is working.  Second test is if jaws is sending ascii
to the synthesizer.  Answers both have to be yes for complete success.

We researched this one where I work. We have not found a function that
does this yet.

Does anyone know of a JAWS API function that allows you to detect
whether JAWS is currently speaking?
