SpeechRecognizer Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the SpeechRecognizer class.

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

public SpeechRecognizer()

Each SpeechRecognizer object maintains a separate set of speech recognition grammars.

The following example is part of a console application that loads a speech recognition grammar and demonstrates asynchronous emulated input, the associated recognition results, and the associated events raised by the speech recognizer. If Windows Speech Recognition is not running, then starting this application will also start Windows Speech Recognition. If Windows Speech Recognition is in the Sleeping state, then EmulateRecognizeAsync always returns null.

using System.Speech.Recognition;

namespace SharedRecognizer

  class Program
  {

    // Indicate whether the asynchronous emulate recognition
    // operation has completed.
    static bool completed;

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {

      // Initialize an instance of the shared recognizer.
      using (SpeechRecognizer recognizer = new SpeechRecognizer())
      {

        // Create and load a sample grammar.
        Grammar testGrammar =
          new Grammar(new GrammarBuilder("testing testing"));
        testGrammar.Name = "Test Grammar";
        recognizer.LoadGrammar(testGrammar);

        // Attach event handlers for recognition events.

        completed = false;

        // Start asynchronous emulated recognition. 
        // This matches the grammar and generates a SpeechRecognized event.
