Moved to Aftermarket Section.

Search using the program name to see if there is a BB version. Also check Handango.com

And try to sue a more descriptive title. You will get more attention that way.

I found the name of the program and it comes already pre-installed on the touch pro, diamond, and new treo pro. I need blackberry to step its game up and get voice command. Voice command tells you when you have a meeting or when a text message comes in so you dont have to worry about setting and remembering what ring did I set more what it just tells you. I need my blackberry to have that!!! I don't know about everyone else but I need that in my life!!!

There is not an application that I'm aware of that does this, but there's a pretty good work-around in this thread :

you don't really need one, if you really want one you can buy one of these. Edit, this way you don't need to have a winmo or blackberry only you can change your phone without leaving this baby.

I did something like this for my email and SMS with Webmessenger Message Alerts,
I created some audio files with an online text to speech generator,
and set up rules within message alerts to play a specific audio
file when an message contain certain words.

It takes a little time to set up (create specific audio files for different contacts or keywords in emails or SMS) but for example:

I receive an email on my BB when there is an mobile speedcamera
on one of the highways between my home and my work. When my BB receives this email, it now says "warning, there is a speedcamera on the A20".

Or if my girlfriend sends me an SMS my BB says "Message received from the most beautiful girl in the world".

Not exactly what you are looking for, but you can do a lot of fun things like this.
