Constants

modeText

Used with soInputMode to indicate that the speech channel is in text-processing mode.

modePhonemes

Used with soInputMode to indicate that the speech channel is in phoneme-processing mode. When in phoneme-processing mode, a text buffer is interpreted to be a series of characters representing various phonemes and prosodic controls.

modeNormal

When the speech channel is in text-processing mode, indicates that the synthesizer should process characters as expected and assemble digits into numbers. Use this value with soCharacterMode and soNumberMode.

modeLiteral

When the speech channel is in text-processing mode, indicates that characters and digits are spoken literally (for example, “cat” is spoken as “C-A-T” and “12” is spoken as "one, two"). Use this value with soCharacterMode and soNumberMode.
