Blocks the client application until the decode is finished.
- int LV_SRE_WaitForDecode(HPORT hport, int VoiceChannel)
The port's handle.
Which voice channel to wait on. Setting VoiceChannel equal to -1 causes a wait on all the voice channels for the port.
No errors. The decode is finished.
The input hport is not a valid one.
The input VoiceChannel is not a valid one.
The timeout value associated with PROP_EX_DECODE_TIMEOUT was exceeded before a result was returned from the Speech Engine. The decode was dropped from the Engine, and the LVSpeechPort may now start a new decode request.
An exception occurred while processing the request.
Some of the API functions run asynchronously, in particular, LV_SRE_Decode. LV_SRE_WaitForDecode is primarily useful when LV_SRE_Decode is called without LV_DECODE_BLOCK. In this case, LV_SRE_Decode returns immediately, but continues processing the voice channel's audio data in a separate thread. Since client applications will eventually need the results, the clients need a way to query the port to see if LV_SRE_Decode has finished. LV_SRE_WaitForDecode will wait the specified time (determined by set value of PROP_EX_DECODE_TIMEOUT) for the engine to idle; check the return value to ensure the decode interaction is finished before attempting to retrieve answers from the speech port.
To wait upto a specific amount of time less than PROP_EX_DECODE_TIMEOUT use LV_SRE_WaitForEngineToIdle where one of the input parameters is the time to wait.
