SpeechRecognizer.LoadGrammar Method

Loads a speech recognition grammar.

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

public void LoadGrammar(
	Grammar grammar
)

Parameters

grammar
Type: System.Speech.Recognition.Grammar

The speech recognition grammar to load.

The shared recognizer throws an exception if the speech recognition grammar is already loaded, is being asynchronously loaded, or has failed to load into any recognizer. If the recognizer is running, applications must use RequestRecognizerUpdate to pause the speech recognition engine before loading, unloading, enabling, or disabling a grammar.

To load a speech recognition grammar asynchronously, use the LoadGrammarAsync method.

The following example is part of a console application that loads a speech recognition grammar and demonstrates asynchronous emulated input, the associated recognition results, and the associated events raised by the speech recognizer. If Windows Speech Recognition is not running, then starting this application will also start Windows Speech Recognition. If Windows Speech Recognition is in the Sleeping state, then EmulateRecognizeAsync always returns null.
