Examples

The following example shows a handler for a SpeechRecognized event designed to handle commands to change foreground and background color.

The handler identifies recognized phrases that have no underlying semantic structure by detecting a Count of zero and a Value of null. This recognition output is then processed directly by parsing the raw text.

In other cases, the handler uses keys to obtain the RGB components of a color name, to determine whether the command will change the foreground or background, or to indicate that no valid key was found.


newGrammar.SpeechRecognized +=  
  delegate(object sender, SpeechRecognizedEventArgs eventArgs)   
  {  

    // Retrieve the value of the semantic property.  
    bool changeBackGround = true;  
    string errorString = "";  
    SemanticValue semantics = eventArgs.Result.Semantics;  

    Color newColor = Color.Empty;  

    try   
    {  
      if (semantics.Count == 0 && semantics.Value==null)  
      {  
        // Signifies recognition by a grammar with no semantics.  
        // Parse the string, assuming that the last word is color,  
        //  searching for background or foreground in input.  
        if (eventArgs.Result.Text.Contains("foreground"))   
        {  
          changeBackGround = false;  
        }  
        string cName = eventArgs.Result.Words[eventArgs.Result.Words.Count - 1].Text;  
        newColor = Color.FromName(cName);  

      }  
      else if (semantics.ContainsKey("colorStringList") ^ semantics.ContainsKey("colorRGBValueList"))   
      {  

        // Determine whether to change background or foreground.  
        if (semantics.ContainsKey("applyChgToBackground"))   
        {  
          changeBackGround = semantics["applyChgToBackground"].Value is bool;  
        }  

        // Get the RGB color value.  
        if (semantics.ContainsKey("colorStringList"))   
        {  
          newColor = Color.FromName((string)semantics["colorStringList"].Value);  
        }

      else   
      {  

        // Throw an exception if the semantics do not contain the keys we  
        // support.  
        throw(new Exception("Unsupported semantics keys found."));  
      }  
    }  

    catch (Exception exp)   
    {  
      MessageBox.Show(String.Format("Unable to process color semantics.:\n{0}\n", exp.Message));  
      return;  
    }  

    // Change colors, either foreground or background.  
    if (changeBackGround)   
    {  
      BackColor = newColor;  
      float Bright = BackColor.GetBrightness();  
      float Hue = BackColor.GetHue();  
      float Sat = BackColor.GetSaturation();  
      // Make sure that text is readable regardless of background.  
      if (BackColor.GetBrightness() <= .50)   
      {  
        ForeColor = Color.White;  
      }  
      else   
      {  
        ForeColor = Color.Black;  
      }  
    }  
    else   
    {  
      ForeColor = newColor;  
      float Bright = ForeColor.GetBrightness();  
      float Hue = ForeColor.GetHue();  
      float Sat = ForeColor.GetSaturation();  

      // Make sure that text is readable regardless of Foreground.  
      if (ForeColor.GetBrightness() <= .50)   
      {  
        BackColor = Color.White;  
      }  
      else   
      {  
        BackColor = Color.Black;  
      }  
    }  
    return;  
  };  

Remarks

Recognition results that do not make use of semantic parsing always have a Count value of zero, as well as a Value of null.
