public void Speak(

The content to speak.

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

The following example creates a Prompt 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 prompt from a string.
        Prompt color = new Prompt("What is your favorite color?");

        // Speak the contents of the prompt synchronously.
        synth.Speak(color);
      }

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