LVTTSClient::Synthesize

Reference Number: AA-01044 Views: 2437 0 Rating/ Voters

Perform the text to speech synthesis operation for the given sentence or SSML text.

Function

  • LV_TTS_RETURN_CODE Synthesize(const char * input_sentence, unsigned int flags)

Parameters

input_sentence

Can be a simple sequence of words or sentences, or can be an SSML document.

Ideally, this text should be encoded in UTF-8 format

flags

Used to control certain facets of the operation. Mostly unused in the current implementation besides LV_TTS_BLOCK. Setting theLV_TTS_BLOCK bit in flags causes the call to wait for a response back from the TTS server before returning. If the LV_TTS_BLOCK flag is not specified, the synthesis will be performed in non-blocking mode, and calls to LVTTSClient::WaitForSynthesis can be used to determine when the synthesis operation has completed.

Return Values

LV_SUCCESS

No errors; synthesis succeeded.

LV_INVALID_TTS_HANDLE

The TTS client handle is invalid (either Initialize has not been called or Destroy has already been called).

LV_NO_COMPATIBLE_TTS_SERVERS

Either none of the connected TTS servers carry a voice corresponding to the requested features, or no TTS servers are available at the time.

LV_SYSTEM_ERROR

If the TTS client has not been initialized yet.

LV_ACQUIRING_LICENSE_FAILED

Either failed to switch license type based on the currently set voice properties or failed to acquire any additionally needed licenses.
