PromptEmphasis Enumeration

 

Enumerates values for levels of emphasis in prompts.

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

public enum class PromptEmphasis

Member nameDescription
Moderate

Indicates a moderate level of emphasis.

None

Indicates no emphasis.

NotSet

Indicates that no emphasis value is specified.

Reduced

Indicates a reduced level of emphasis.

Strong

Indicates a strong level of emphasis.

Members of the PromptEmphasis enumeration are used by the PromptStyle constructor, by the AppendText method, and by the StartStyle method to specify the level of emphasis for spoken text. The Emphasis property gets the emphasis for a PromptStyle object using a PromptEmphasis instance.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The speech synthesis engines in Windows do not support variations in the emphasis of speech output at this time. Setting values for emphasis using a member of the PromptEmphasis enumeration will produce no audible change in the synthesized speech output.
