UPDATE 10pm 12/15/12*** After weeks of work, the EMIC II speak to text module is refusing to integrate with our arduino code. IT works fine on its own, but won't work in conjunction with our other parts, components and code. This has been a huge hit to our overall morale the night before the ITP show. That being said, we have recently discovered a text to speech sketch built in processing utilizing apple's native speech function. We are extremely excited about this but have our doubts about integrating entirely new components/functionality hours hours before the show. Above is a drawing of the current state of our connections. We need to get info from our Xbees to send to arduino and to tell processing to directly connect to the web. After several failed attempts, we finally have been able to get our xbees to communicate with each other. After previously avoiding it entirely, the use of a processing sketch seems to be working and enabling these endeavors.
