Window-Eyes has the ability to communicate directly with applications by using an Application Programming Interface (API) called GWSpeak.Speak.

The following example demonstrates the use of the Window-Eyes GWSpeak.Speak API using VBScript:

Sub StartSpeaking()
Set myobject = CreateObject("GWSpeak.Speak")
myobject.SpeakString ("This is the text you want to speak")
End Sub

GWSpeak.Speak has one other method, Silence. That method makes Window-Eyes stop speaking:

Sub StopSpeaking()
Set myobject = CreateObject("GWSpeak.Speak")
End Sub

NOTE: Window-Eyes must be installed and running in order for GWSpeak.Speak to function correctly.
