SpeechEventInfo.Param2 SpeechEventInfo.Param2 SpeechEventInfo.Param2 SpeechEventInfo.Param2 Property

Definition

Gets and set the System.IntPtr instance (param2 in the constructor) referencing the object to be passed to the Speech platform to generate an event the current instance of SpeechEventInfo is used to request.

public:
 property IntPtr Param2 { IntPtr get(); };
public IntPtr Param2 { get; }
member this.Param2 : nativeint
Public ReadOnly Property Param2 As IntPtr

Property Value

Returns the System.IntPtr referencing the object to be passed to Speech platform when the event specified by the current instance of SpeechEventInfo is generated.

Examples

The example below is part of a custom speech synthesis implementation inheriting from TtsEngineSsml, and using the use of TextFragment, SpeechEventInfo, FragmentState, and TtsEventId

The implementation of Speak

  1. Receives an array of TextFragment instances and creates a new array of TextFragment instances to be passed to the Speak method on an underlying synthesis engine.

  2. If the TtsEngineAction enumeration value by found from the Action property on the FragmentState returned by the State property of each TextFragment instance is Speak, the implementation

    • Translates Americanism to Britishisms in the text to be spoken.

    • If the EventInterest property on the ITtsEngineSite interfaces provided to the implementation support the WordBoundary event type, a SpeechEventInfo instance is used to create an event to drive a synthesizer progress meter is created.

      The parameters on SpeechEventInfo, including Param2 are used to log the event generated through the LogSpeechEvent method.

  3. A speech rendering engine is then called with the modified TextFragment array.

private const int WordBoundaryFlag = 1 << (int)TtsEventId.WordBoundary;  
private readonly char[] spaces = new char[] { ' ', '\t', '\r', '\n' };  
internal struct UsVsUk  
{  
  internal string UK;  
  internal string US;  
}  

override public void Speak (TextFragment [] frags, IntPtr wfx, ITtsEngineSite site)  
{  
  TextFragment [] newFrags=new TextFragment[frags.Length];  

  for (int i=0;i<frags.Length;i++){  
    newFrags[i].State=frags[i].State;  
    //truncate  
    newFrags[i].TextToSpeak = frags[i].TextToSpeak.Substring(frags[i].TextOffset,  
                               frags[i].TextLength);  
    newFrags[i].TextLength = newFrags[i].TextToSpeak.Length;  
    newFrags[i].TextOffset = 0;  
    if (newFrags[i].State.Action == TtsEngineAction.Speak) {  
      //Us to UK conversion  
      foreach (UsVsUk term in TransList) {  
      newFrags[i].TextToSpeak.Replace(term.US, term.UK);  
      }  
      //Generate progress meter events if supported  
      if ((site.EventInterest & WordBoundaryFlag) != 0) {  
      string[] subs = newFrags[i].TextToSpeak.Split(spaces);  

      foreach (string s in subs) {  
        int offset = newFrags[i].TextOffset;  
        SpeechEventInfo spEvent = new SpeechEventInfo((Int16)TtsEventId.WordBoundary,   
                (Int16)EventParameterType.Undefined,   
                 s.Length, new IntPtr(offset));  
         LogSpeechEvent(spEvent.EventId,   
                        spEvent.ParameterType,   
                        spEvent.Param1,  
                        spEvent.Param2);  
        offset += s.Length;  
        if (s.Trim().Length > 0) {  
          SpeechEventInfo[] events = new SpeechEventInfo[1];  
          events[0] = spEvent;  
          site.AddEvents(events, 1);  
        }  
      }  
      }  
    }  
  }  

  _baseSynthesize.Speak(newFrags, wfx, site);  

}  

Remarks

The requirements on the System.IntPtr reference of the Param2 property of SpeechEventInfo are uniquely determined by the values of the EventId and ParameterType properties the SpeechEventInfo instance.

For detailed information on how use Param2, see documentation for EventId.
