Starts an asynchronous speech recognition operation.
These methods perform single or multiple, asynchronous recognition operations. The recognizer performs each operation against its loaded and enabled speech recognition grammars.
During a call to this method, the recognizer can raise the following events:
SpeechDetected. Raised when the recognizer detects input that it can identify as speech.
SpeechHypothesized. Raised when input creates an ambiguous match with one of the active grammars.
RecognizeCompleted. Raised when a operation finishes.
To retrieve the result of an asynchronous recognition operation, attach an event handler to the recognizer's SpeechRecognized event. The recognizer raises this event whenever it successfully completes a synchronous or asynchronous recognition operation. If recognition was not successful, the Result property on RecognizeCompletedEventArgs object, which you can access in the handler for the RecognizeCompleted event, will be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
An asynchronous recognition operation can fail for the following reasons:
The recognition engine detects speech but finds no matches in any of its loaded and enabled Grammar objects.
To modify how the recognizer handles the timing of speech or silence with respect to recognition, use the BabbleTimeout, InitialSilenceTimeout, EndSilenceTimeout, and EndSilenceTimeoutAmbiguous properties.
To perform synchronous recognition, use one of the Recognize methods.
