using System.Speech.Synthesis;

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

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

        // Configure the audio output. 

        // Create a PromptBuilder object and append a text string.
        PromptBuilder song = new PromptBuilder();
        song.AppendText("Say the name of the song you want to hear");

        // Speak the contents of the prompt synchronously.

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