SpeechSynthesizer.Speak Method (PromptBuilder)

Synchronously speaks the contents of a PromptBuilder object.

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

public void Speak(
	PromptBuilder promptBuilder
)

Parameters

promptBuilder
Type: System.Speech.Synthesis.PromptBuilder

The content to speak.

To asynchronously speak the contents of a PromptBuilder object, use SpeakAsync.

The following example creates a PromptBuilder object from a string and passes the object as an argument to the Speak method.

using System;
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. 
        synth.SetOutputToDefaultAudioDevice();

        // 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.
        synth.Speak(song);
      }

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