mark Element

mark Element

An empty element that designates a specific location in a text sequence. This element can also be used to mark an output audio stream for asynchronous notification.

Syntax

<mark name="string" />

Attributes

Attribute

Description

name

Required. Identifies the name of the mark element. The value is a string.

Remarks

Use the empty mark element to insert a marker into an output stream to trigger asynchronous notification.

When the application reaches the mark element, the text-to-speech engine raises an event that includes the value for the name attribute of the element. In System.Speech, the speech synthesizer raises a BookmarkReached event when it encounters a mark element.
