Dear All,

I'm developing a small Java application which will use Espeak to speak certain text. Now I pass the test as command line argument

\$espeak -s 50 "a for apple"

It works perfect on command line
Now in my program, I've used

String cmd = "espeak -s 50 \"A for apple\"";

Then I use this string as
Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmd);

Instead of playing 'A for apple' this plays onle 'A', I've tried with \\ but it says
a backslash. So what we need to include is a way to let espeak know of space and remaining string. Please help me about how to do this.

Have you tried escaping spaces using a singular?

``String cmd = "espeak -s 50 \"A\ for\ apple\"";``

I would think that using \\ would print a literal \.

Hi,

The espeak speaks the string as "a backslash" and that's it. No more reading.
Anyway I've dumped espeak and just half an hour ago got festival working perfect. So i'm using files for the stuff and i'm doing fine (atleast for now)

Thanks again.
