This sample builds a Web Kit plug-in which reads text out loud using the Cocoa programmatic interface for speech. The text is passed from the host web page to the plug-in via JavaScript, thanks to the Objective-C WebScripting protocol. For more on scripting Web Kit plug-ins, see "Web Kit Plug-in Programming Topics" in the ADC Reference Library.

To install the built plug-in, place it in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins or ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins and relaunch your favorite Web Kit-based browser.
