Public Class Prompt
Dim instance As Prompt
public class Prompt


A Prompt object can contain plain text, text formatted with markup language, or audio files.

An empty Prompt object is created with each new instance of PromptBuilder. The PromptBuilder class provides methods for adding content, including text, SSML markup, bookmarks, and prerecorded audio files (such as .wav files), to the empty Prompt object that it contains. Typically, applications will use PromptBuilder, rather than a Prompt object, to create prompts and populate them with content.

To generate speech from the contents of a Prompt object, use the Speak(Prompt) method.
