SpeechSynthesizer.SetOutputToDefaultAudioDevice Method

Configures the SpeechSynthesizer object to send output to the default audio device for the system.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Speech.Synthesis
Assembly:  Microsoft.Speech (in Microsoft.Speech.dll)

public void SetOutputToDefaultAudioDevice()

For other output configuration options, see the SetOutputToAudioStream, SetOutputToNull, SetOutputToWaveFile, and SetOutputToWaveStream methods.

The following example uses the synthesizer to speak a phrase to the default audio output.

using System;
using Microsoft.Speech.Synthesis;

namespace SampleSynthesis
{
  class Program
  {
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {

      // Initialize a new instance of the speech synthesizer.
      using (SpeechSynthesizer synth = new SpeechSynthesizer())
      {

        // Configure the synthesizer to send output to the default audio device.
        synth.SetOutputToDefaultAudioDevice();

        // Speak a phrase.
        synth.Speak("This is sample text-to-speech output.");
      }

      Console.WriteLine();
      Console.WriteLine("Press any key to exit...");
      Console.ReadKey();
    }
  }
}
