Determining the pronunciation of a spoken word? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a utility that would add words to a Medical Lexicon by continually extending an set of XML Grammar files, and I am trying to figure out a creative way of figuring out the phonetic pronunciation of a word by having the user pronounce it.

    An example would be if they say the word "Roentgen" which is pronounced "Rankin"... 

    What I would like to be able to do is when thy say a word that isn't known, then it will be missed so they will select the word and trigger the my correction dialog.  So far, so good...

    But after they type in the spelling of the new word and then test the pronunciation, I would like to query the phonetic syllables from the engine so the information can be stored in my XML Grammar file so everyone using my system can benifit.

    So can anyone tell me if I can query the phonetic data from an API call?
