RecognizeCompletedEventArgs.InitialSilenceTimeout Property

Gets a value that indicates whether an initial silence timeout generated the SpeechRecognitionEngine.RecognizeCompleted event.

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

public bool InitialSilenceTimeout { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the SpeechRecognitionEngine has detected only silence for a longer time period than was specified by its InitialSilenceTimeout property; otherwise false.

The following example performs asynchronous speech recognition on a speech recognition grammar, using the SpeechRecognitionEngine.RecognizeAsync method with the in-process recognizer. The example uses Choices and GrammarBuilder objects to create the speech recognition grammar before building it into a Grammar object. A handler for the SpeechRecognitionEngine.RecognizeCompleted event outputs information about the recognition operation to the console.

using System;
using System.Speech.Recognition;

namespace SampleRecognition
{
  class Program
  {
    private static SpeechRecognitionEngine recognizer;
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {

      // Initialize a SpeechRecognitionEngine object and set its input.
      recognizer = new SpeechRecognitionEngine(new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US"));
      recognizer.SetInputToDefaultAudioDevice();

      // Configure recognition parameters.
      recognizer.InitialSilenceTimeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5.0);
      recognizer.BabbleTimeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(3.0);
      recognizer.EndSilenceTimeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1.0);
      recognizer.EndSilenceTimeoutAmbiguous = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(1.0);

      // Add a handler for the LoadGrammarCompleted event.
      recognizer.LoadGrammarCompleted +=
        new EventHandler<LoadGrammarCompletedEventArgs>(recognizer_LoadGrammarCompleted);

      // Add a handler for the RecognizeCompleted event.
      recognizer.RecognizeCompleted += 
        new EventHandler<RecognizeCompletedEventArgs>(recognizer_RecognizeCompleted);

      // Create a speech recognition grammar and build it into a Grammar object.
      Choices bankingMenu = new Choices(new string[] 
      { "Access accounts", "Transfer funds", "Pay bills", "Get loan balance" });

      // Load the Grammar objects to the recognizer.
      recognizer.LoadGrammarAsync(bankGrammar);

      // Start asynchronous, continuous recognition.
      recognizer.RecognizeAsync();
