SpeechHypothesizedEventArgs Class


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Returns notification from SpeechRecognitionEngine.SpeechHypothesized or SpeechRecognizer.SpeechHypothesized events.

This class supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from application code.

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


type SpeechHypothesizedEventArgs = 
        inherit RecognitionEventArgs


Gets the recognition result data associated with the speech recognition event.(Inherited from RecognitionEventArgs.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

A SpeechHypothesized event is raised by the SpeechRecognizer and SpeechRecognitionEngine classes.

You can obtain detailed information about a tentatively recognized phrase by using the Result property.

Numerous SpeechHypothesized events are generated as a recognition engine attempts to identify an input phrase. Typically, handling these events is useful only for debugging.

SpeechHypothesizedEventArgs derives from RecognitionEventArgs.

The example below creates a handler for SpeechRecognizer.SpeechHypothesized or SpeechRecognitionEngine.SpeechHypothesized events. The handler uses an instance of SpeechHypothesizedEventArgs to return and display information about a tentatively recognized phrase.

// Create a handler for the SpeechHypothesized event.
recognizer.SpeechHypothesized += new EventHandler<SpeechHypothesizedEventArgs>(recognizer_SpeechHypothesized);

// Handle the event and display the hypothesized result.
void recognizer_SpeechHypothesized (object sender, SpeechHypothesizedEventArgs e)
    Console.WriteLine("Hypothesized text: " + e.Result.Text);
