GetDisplayAttributes Method

The GetDisplayAttributes method returns the display attribute for the text.

The display attribute is the padding of white spaces before or after each word as determined by the engine. The speech recognition engine determines this value for the language used. Western scripts commonly use spaces between words, although eastern languages may not. Default is SDA_One_Trailing_Space.
