ISpeechVoiceStatus CurrentStreamNumber Property (SAPI 5.3)
The CurrentStreamNumber property retrieves the number of the text input stream being spoken by the text-to-speech (TTS) engine.
The CurrentStreamNumber property of an ISpeechVoiceStatus object is valid only when its RunningState property is SRSEIsSpeaking.
|Set:||(This property is read-only)|
|Get:||Long = ISpeechVoiceStatus.CurrentStreamNumber|
- The owning object.
Set: (This property is read-only)
Get: A Long variable that returns the stream number.
The following Visual Basic form code demonstrates the use of the CurrentStreamNumber and RunningState properties. To run this code, create a form with the following controls:
- A command button called Command1
- A list box called List1
Paste this code into the Declarations section of the form.
The Form_Load procedure creates a voice. The Command1_Click procedure speaks three text streams asynchronously, putting each in the list box, and then performs a loop until the voice finishes speaking. Inside this loop, the code uses the CurrentStreamNumber property to highlight each line of text in the list box while it is spoken by the TTS engine. A RunningState property of SRSEDone indicates that the voice has finished speaking.
