Grammar.Weight Property

Property used to control the influence of a grammar on a recognition engine's algorithm.

Namespace: Microsoft.Speech.Recognition
Assembly: Microsoft.Speech (in microsoft.speech.dll)

Property Value

Returns a floating point value indicating the relative weight a recognition engine (SpeechRecognizer or SpeechRecognitionEngine) instance should assign to this grammar when processing audio input.

Because of the complexity of a recognition engine's use of Weight, its effect on a particular grammar's performance is not as directly predictable as that of Priority,

Use of Weight should only be done after controlled diagnostic study of a particular recognition environment and with full information about the recognition engine under use.

All public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread-safe. Instance members are not guaranteed to be thread-safe.
