      using (SpeechSynthesizer synth = new SpeechSynthesizer())
      {

        // Configure the audio output. 
        synth.SetOutputToWaveFile(@"C:\test\showtimes.wav");

        // Create a SoundPlayer instance to play the output audio file.
        System.Media.SoundPlayer m_SoundPlayer =
          new System.Media.SoundPlayer(@"C:\test\showtimes.wav");

        // Build child prompts.
        PromptBuilder theatreA = new PromptBuilder();
        theatreA.AppendText(
          "Tonight's movie showings in theater A are at 5:45, 7:15, and 9:30");
        theatreA.AppendBreak(PromptBreak.Large);
        PromptBuilder theatreB = new PromptBuilder();
        theatreB.AppendText(
          "Tonight's movie showings in theater B are at 5:15, 7:15, and 9:15");

        // Build the parent prompt and append the two child prompts.
        PromptBuilder showTimes = new PromptBuilder(
          new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US"));
        showTimes.AppendText(
          "The following are the show times for tonight's movies:");
        showTimes.AppendPromptBuilder(theatreA);
        showTimes.AppendPromptBuilder(theatreB);

        // Speak the prompt and play back the output file.
        synth.Speak(showTimes);
        m_SoundPlayer.Play();
      }
