SpAudioFormat Type Property (SAPI 5.3)

Speech API 5.3
Microsoft Speech API 5.3

Object: SpAudioFormat

Type Property


The Type property gets and sets the speech audio format as a SpeechAudioFormatType.

Most applications using standard audio formats should use Type to set and retrieve formats.


Syntax

Set: SpAudioFormat.Type = SpeechAudioFormatType
Get: SpeechAudioFormatType = SpAudioFormat.Type

Parts

SpAudioFormat
The owning object.
SpeechAudioFormatType
Set: A SpeechAudioFormatType object that sets the property.
Get: A SpeechAudioFormatType object that gets the property.

Example

The following Visual Basic form code demonstrates the use of the Type and Guid properties. To run this code, create a form with the following controls:

  • Two command buttons called Command1 and Command2

Paste this code into the Declarations section of the form.

The Command1 procedure creates a token category object and sets it to the category of audio inputs, selects a token for the first MMSys resource, and instantiates an SpMMAudioIn object with the token's CreateInstance method. The code then creates an SpAudioFormat object from the SpMMAudioIn object, and changes the Type property of the SpAudioFormat object. Finally, the code sets the Format property of the SpMMAudioIn object with the SpAudioFormat object.

The Command2 procedure performs the same series of operations with audio outputs instead of audio inputs.
