ISpeechRecoGrammar DictationLoad method (SAPI 5.3)

Speech API 5.3
Microsoft Speech API 5.3

Interface: ISpeechRecoGrammar

DictationLoad Method


The DictationLoad method loads a dictation topic into the grammar.


ISpeechRecoGrammar.DictationLoad(
     [TopicName As String = ""],
     [LoadOption As SpeechLoadOption = SLOStatic]
)

Parameters

TopicName
[Optional] Specifies a dictation topic. The default value is the empty string.
LoadOption
[Optional] Specifies whether the grammar is to be loaded for static or dynamic use. The default is static.

Return Value

None.


Remarks

SAPI currently defines one specialized dictation topic: SPTOPIC_SPELLING. SR engines are not required to support specialized dictation topics (including spelling). When using another manufacturer's SR engine, consult its documentation for details.

Example

The following Visual Basic form code demonstrates the use of the DictationLoad, DictationSetState, and DictationUnload methods. It creates a grammar, configures the grammar to perform both dictation and command and control (C and C) recognition, and toggles between the two types of recognition.

To run this code, create a form with a command button called Command1 and paste this code into the Declarations section of the form. The Form_Load procedure creates a grammar object, associates it with the system dictation lexicon and the Solitaire C and C grammar, and begins recognition in dictation mode. The Command1_Click procedure toggles the recognition mode between dictation and C and C. The Form_Unload procedure unloads the dictation grammar and inactivates the C and C grammar.
