Even if they included Speex support, the Android media API is very 
limited, as it can only access audio from a file or an HTTP URL. I 
raised a bug against Android that the JavaSound API is not working (it 
is documented though), but it was closed with the explanation that the 
JavaSound API will not be implemented. JavaSound would have offered a 
possibility to play software-synthesized PCM data, e.g. the output from 
JSpeex and access recorded PCM data for speex encoding, but this option 
seem to be "dead" now.
