Event Type


A phoneme is a basic component of written language, typically a letter of an alphabet (or the combination of two letters) that represents one or more distinct sounds. For example, the letter "c" is a phoneme that may sound like "s" in "cinder", or like "k" in "catch". A written word is an assemblage of phonemes. Changing a phoneme in a word will alter its spelling.

A SpeechSynthesizer instance generates a PhonemeReached event for each portion of a word that constitutes a phoneme. For example, for the word "theme" would generate three PhonemeReached events; one for the "th" sound, one for the "e" sound, and one for the "m" sound (me).

For an example and information about data associated with the event, see PhonemeReachedEventArgs.
