I am writing a study tool in java to help me learn Japanese, but I can't find a free program compatible with java that will read and speak Japanese text. If it could just read/speak romaji that would be good enough.

Have you looked into developers.google.com/translate –  kobaltz Sep 20 '13 at 21:19
@kobaltz You have to pay for it –  TAAPSogeking Sep 21 '13 at 3:30
Correct, $20 for 1 million (10^6) characters. However, you may want to edit your post and mention that you're looking for a free or open source alternative to Google Translates paid API service. –  kobaltz Sep 21 '13 at 3:36
