ContourPoint Structure

ContourPoint Structure

Represents changes in pitch for the speech content of a TextFragment.

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

public struct ContourPoint : IEquatable<ContourPoint>

The ContourPoint type exposes the following members.

Public methodContourPointCreates a new instance of the ContourPoint class.

Public propertyChangeGets the value that represents the amount to raise or lower the pitch at a point in a TextFragment.
Public propertyChangeTypeGets a member of ChangeType that specifies the unit to use for the number specified in the change parameter of a ContourPoint object.
Public propertyStart Gets a Single that specifies the point at which to apply the pitch change in a TextFragment. This is expressed as the elapsed percentage of the duration of the TextFragment at that point.

Public methodEquals(ContourPoint)Determines if a given instance of ContourPoint is equal to the current instance of ContourPoint.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines if a given object is an instance of ContourPoint and equal to the current instance of ContourPoint. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns a hash code for this instance. (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns the fully qualified type name of this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)

Public operatorStatic memberEqualityDetermines if two instances of ContourPoint are equal.
Public operatorStatic memberInequalityDetermines if two instances of ContourPoint are NOT equal.

The pitch contour is defined as an array of targets at specified time positions in the speech output. Each target is defined by three parameters. The first value is a percentage of the period of the contained text (a number followed by "%"). The second value specifies the amount to raise or lower the pitch. The third value designates the unit to use for the number specified in the second value; either percentage or hertz (Hz).

ContourPoint objects are obtained by the GetContourPoints method, or used to set the pitch contour for a TextFragment by the SetContourPoints method.
