ISpNotifyCallback (SAPI 5.4)
Microsoft Speech API 5.4
This is not a COM interface. This is a C++ virtual interface that can be implemented by a SAPI client application to receive notifications. Since it is not a COM interface, the application does not need to implement QueryInterface, AddRef, or Release. It is the responsibility of the client code to control the lifetime of an ISpNotifyCallback-style notification. To remove an installed notify callback, call ISpEventSource::SetNotifySink( NULL ). The final release of an object that supports ISpEventSource will automatically remove an installed notify callback.
The SAPI implementation uses a hidden window to call the client back on the same thread that was used to initialize the event source. Notification callbacks are the result of processing a window message. This means that when the notification mechanism is used:
- The NoitifyCallback method will always be called on the thread that initialized the event source or notify translator object.
- The thread must have a window message pump.
