Text Input and Voice

The text input and voice features introduce how you can convert speech to text and back to speech, and provide customized keyboards and voice control.

You can use the following text input and voice features in your .NET applications:

  • Input Method and Input Method Manager

    You can create an IME (Input Method Editor) application that provides a customized keyboard for the user. You can show and hide the keyboard as needed, and offer a keyboard option menu to allow the user to manage the keyboard settings.

  • Speech-to-text

    You can recognize sound data recorded by the user and send the result as text. The result text can, for example, be displayed on the screen.

  • Text-to-speech

    You can synthesize text into sound data as utterances and play it. You can also control the playback by pausing, resuming, and stopping it, as needed.

  • Voice Control

    You can allow the user to control the device through voice commands. You can register voice commands, which trigger a callback when the user speaks them.

  • Voice Control Manager

    You can record voice and give responses for the recognized voice commands. You can register general and system voice commands such as “power on”, “power off”, “music play”, “music stop”, and so on. In addition, you can start and stop voice recording.
