how to access a library if you have no header files

On my TomTom there is the Laqundo voice synthisis system, which I really would like to use. It appears to be built of libraries which are called directly from TomTom's propriatary software.

Unfortunatly there appears to be no header files available anywhere on the internet to access these.

Is it possible to do a dump or something to find out how to access these libraries?

what you want to do is not impossible, but it is non-trivial. If you have the library in hand (that is to say, on your hard drive) and it is an elf compiled for the same architecture as your machine, then you can use a debugger to try to find entry points into their various functions / objects. you may be better off writing to the vendor to see what licensing options you may have available.
