Taken from the fsdn 
Function: IsSpeaking 
Description 
Checks to see if any text is currently being spoken. 

Returns 
Type: Int
Description: TRUE if synthesizer is speaking, FALSE otherwise.


Parameters 
No Parameters 

Version 
This function is available in the following releases: 

PAC Mate 1.10 and later 

I think you would have to test to verify that this would actually work
on a PC running JAWS.  My guess is probably not.

Hi,
Yes. There is a function called IsSpeaking. It returns 1 if JAWS is
currently speaking, 0 if not.

Jim,

If I recall correctly (Andrew, correct me if I'm wrong), I think we are
actually using jfwapi.dll, but we didn't see a function that allows you
to detect if jaws is currently speaking in the list. Is there something
specific you had in mind here?

Hi,
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 that.

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.

Hello,

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