ReplacementText Class

Contains information about a speech normalization procedure that has been performed on recognition results.

System.Object
  Microsoft.Speech.Recognition.ReplacementText

Namespace:  Microsoft.Speech.Recognition
Assembly:  Microsoft.Speech (in Microsoft.Speech.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
public class ReplacementText

Speech normalization is the use of special constructs or symbols to express speech in writing.

For example, suppose that this is recognized text:

july fourth at twelve thirty one PM, I bought one point six kilograms of fish for fourteen dollars and six cents, at the pike market in seattle washington nine eight one two two

This is the same text after normalization:

July 4 at 12:31 PM, I bought 1.6 kg of fish for $14.06, at the pike market in Seattle WA 98122

In this example there are five substitutions, each of which would be described by an instance of ReplacementText.

Using the ReplacementText object, an application can determine:

Instances of ReplacementText are typically obtained as members of the Collection object returned by the ReplacementWordUnits property on RecognizedPhrase (or classes which inherit from RecognizedPhrase such as RecognitionResult) when returned text has been normalized.

In the example below, information about a RecognizedPhrase object returned by a recognition engine is displayed to a user interface.

                       rec.RecognizerAudioPosition.TotalMilliseconds,
