We present a component for incremental speech synthesis (iSS) and a set of applications that demonstrate its capabilities. This compo- nent can be used to increase the responsivity and naturalness of spoken interactive systems. While iSS can show its full strength in systems that generate output incrementally, we also dis- cuss how even otherwise unchanged systems may profit from its capabilities.
