Remarks

The word emphasis is set for TextFragment instances through the Emphasis property on the FragmentState object returned by the State property on an instance of TextFragment.

Each synthetic speech engine is free to determine how to render emphasis; the nature of emphasis differs between languages, dialects, genders, or voices.

Both EmphasisWord and EmphasisBreak may be used when setting or getting the Emphasis on a FragmentState instance.

The two values may be distinguished by the fact that the actual values of EmphasisWord are greater than or equal to zero, and the values of EmphasisBreak are all less than zero; and by using the value of TtsEngineAction returned by the Action property on the FragmentState object returned by the State property on an instance. From more information, see Action,and Emphasis.
