Speech Submission Java applet and OpenJDK

The VoxForge Speech Submission applet is a signed Java applet. Unfortunately, OpenJDK's (free implementation of Sun's Java run-time environment) browser plugin, gcjwebplugin, does not yet support signed plugins.

From the Fedora Project Wiki:

Handling Java Applets

Upstream OpenJDK does not provide a plugin. The Fedora OpenJDK packages include an adaptation of gcjwebplugin, that runs untrusted applets safely in a Web browser. The plugin is packaged as java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin.

Therefore, the Speech Submission app will not run with OpenJDK.  You will need to download a current version of Sun's Java run-time environment and link it to your browser using the instructions on Sun's site.
