This is my javascript function . Speech.html or Speech.jsp. if i store this html file local and run the same in locally through Internet Explorer it works fine.

but the problem if i access the speech file through server it cant work. the ActiveX control is not working .

This is my function.. .. I have enabled all the security settings in IE

also it is working fine in the eclipse browser itself. through server.

This is Speech Fucnction

function SpeakText()
var my_test = "T";
new ActiveXObject("SAPI.SpVoice").Speak( my_test, 1 );

Javascript Error : Automation server cannot create Object

please give me a valuable suggestion.

Thanks in advance

How did you install the ActiveX control? Are you certain that the browser knows where/how to find it?

This might be a case of the browser preventing the Javascript from executing a cross-domain call. It's quite a prevalent issue when writing AJAX code. Incidentally, in the case of AJAX too, a similar sort of Javascript error occurs when an XMLHTTPRequest is created [in case of IE, that is a new ActiveXObject]
