SpeechRecognitionEngine.EmulateRecognize SpeechRecognitionEngine.EmulateRecognize SpeechRecognitionEngine.EmulateRecognize SpeechRecognitionEngine.EmulateRecognize Method

Definition

Emulates input to the speech recognizer, using text in place of audio for synchronous speech recognition.

Overloads

EmulateRecognize(String) EmulateRecognize(String) EmulateRecognize(String) EmulateRecognize(String)

Emulates input of a phrase to the speech recognizer, using text in place of audio for synchronous speech recognition.

EmulateRecognize(RecognizedWordUnit[], CompareOptions) EmulateRecognize(RecognizedWordUnit[], CompareOptions) EmulateRecognize(RecognizedWordUnit[], CompareOptions)

Emulates input of specific words to the speech recognizer, using text in place of audio for synchronous speech recognition, and specifies how the recognizer handles Unicode comparison between the words and the loaded speech recognition grammars.

EmulateRecognize(String, CompareOptions) EmulateRecognize(String, CompareOptions) EmulateRecognize(String, CompareOptions)

Emulates input of a phrase to the speech recognizer, using text in place of audio for synchronous speech recognition, and specifies how the recognizer handles Unicode comparison between the phrase and the loaded speech recognition grammars.

Remarks

These methods bypass the system audio input and provide text to the recognizer as String objects or as an array of RecognizedWordUnit objects. This can be helpful when you are testing or debugging an application or grammar. For example, you can use emulation to determine whether a word is in a grammar and what semantics are returned when the word is recognized. Use the SetInputToNull method to disable audio input to the speech recognition engine during emulation operations.

The speech recognizer raises the SpeechDetected, SpeechHypothesized, SpeechRecognitionRejected, and SpeechRecognized events as if the recognition operation is not emulated. The recognizer ignores new lines and extra white space and treats punctuation as literal input.

Note

The RecognitionResult object generated by the speech recognizer in response to emulated input has a value of null for its Audio property.

To emulate asynchronous recognition, use the EmulateRecognizeAsync method.

EmulateRecognize(String) EmulateRecognize(String) EmulateRecognize(String) EmulateRecognize(String)

Examples

The code example below is part of a console application that demonstrates emulated input, the associated recognition results, and the associated events raised by the speech recognizer. The example generates the following output.

TestRecognize("Smith")...  
 SpeechDetected event raised.  
 SpeechRecognized event raised.  
  Grammar = Smith; Text = Smith  
...Recognition result text = Smith  

TestRecognize("Jones")...  
 SpeechDetected event raised.  
 SpeechRecognized event raised.  
  Grammar = Jones; Text = Jones  
...Recognition result text = Jones  

TestRecognize("Mister")...  
 SpeechDetected event raised.  
 SpeechHypothesized event raised.  
  Grammar = Smith; Text = mister  
 SpeechRecognitionRejected event raised.  
  Grammar = <not available>; Text =  
...No recognition result.  

TestRecognize("Mister Smith")...  
 SpeechDetected event raised.  
 SpeechRecognized event raised.  
  Grammar = Smith; Text = mister Smith  
...Recognition result text = mister Smith

Remarks

The speech recognizer raises the SpeechDetected, SpeechHypothesized, SpeechRecognitionRejected, and SpeechRecognized events as if the recognition operation is not emulated.

The recognizers that ship with Vista and Windows 7 ignore case and character width when applying grammar rules to the input phrase. For more information about this type of comparison, see the CompareOptions enumeration values OrdinalIgnoreCase and IgnoreWidth. The recognizers also ignore new lines and extra white space and treat punctuation as literal input.

Parameters

wordUnits
RecognizedWordUnit[]

An array of word units that contains the input for the recognition operation.

compareOptions
CompareOptions CompareOptions CompareOptions CompareOptions

A bitwise combination of the enumeration values that describe the type of comparison to use for the emulated recognition operation.

Returns

The result for the recognition operation, or null if the operation is not successful or the recognizer is not enabled.

Remarks

The speech recognizer raises the SpeechDetected, SpeechHypothesized, SpeechRecognitionRejected, and SpeechRecognized events as if the recognition operation is not emulated.

The recognizer uses compareOptions when it applies grammar rules to the input phrase. The recognizers that ship with Vista and Windows 7 ignore case if the OrdinalIgnoreCase or IgnoreCase value is present. The recognizer always ignores the character width and never ignores the Kana type. The recognizer also ignores new lines and extra white space and treats punctuation as literal input. For more information about character width and Kana type, see the CompareOptions enumeration.
