Property Value

Type: System.Int32

Returns an int value indicating how to emphasize a TextFragment.

The interpretation of the value returned by Emphasis depends on the TtsEngineAction value returned by the Action property on the current FragmentState.

  1. If the value of Action is Silence

    • If Emphasis is positive, the value returned should be interpreted as the length of the silence in milliseconds.

    • If Emphasis is negative, the value returned should be interpreted as a member of the EmphasisBreak.

    Emphasis information returned by Emphasis when the property Action is Silence corresponds to the attributes of the <break> element of SSML input to a speech synthesizer engine.

  2. For all other values of Action, the Emphasis values should be interpreted as being of EmphasisWord.

    Emphasis information returned by Emphasis for spoken words corresponds to the attributes of the <emphasis> element of SSML input to a speech synthesizer engine.
