LV_TTS_SynthesizeURL

Reference Number: AA-01638 Views: 1838 0 Rating/ Voters

Perform the text to speech synthesis operation for the SSML text from the specified URL.

Function

  • LV_TTS_RETURN_CODE LV_TTS_SynthesizeURL(HTTSCLIENT client_handle, const char * universal_resource_locator, unsigned int flags);

Parameters

client_handle

Handle to the active TTS client object.

universal_resource_locator

URL containing a simple sequence of words/sentences or an SSML document.

Ideally, the referenced document should be encoded in UTF-8 format

This URL can be a file system reference, or remote HTTP reference, and as of LumenVox version 11.2.100, users may also specify resources located on secure HTTPS servers

flags

Used to control certain facets of the operation. Mostly unused in the current implementation besides LV_TTS_BLOCK. Setting the LV_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 LV_TTS_WaitForSynthesis can be used to determine when the synthesis operation has completed.

Return Values

LV_SUCCESS

No errors; synthesis succeeded.
