speaks a spoken representation of the expression expr.
Details and Options
- Speak["string"] speaks the text in "string".
- Speak[expr] works with mathematical expressions, programs, graphics, and other constructs.
- Speak[HoldForm[expr]] speaks the held form of expr, without evaluation.
- Speak attempts to produce naturally worded speech rather than literal representations of expression structure.
- Speak produces sound using your computer's operating system.
- SpokenString[expr] gives text for the speech generated by Speak[expr].
- The following options can be given:
"ArraySizeLimit" 10 maximal number of elements of an array or arguments of a function "DetailedGraphics" False controls the description of graphics primitives "ExpressionDepthLimit" 10 maximal depth of an expression allowed in the output "IncludeParentheses" False controls the delimiting of subexpressions "IntegerLimit" 10^10 maximal integer that will be given with all its digits "RealPrecisionLimit" 3 how many significant digits to include in approximate numbers "StringLengthLimit" 1000 maximal number of characters in strings and symbol names
- "ArraySizeLimit" and "ExpressionDepthLimit" control the size of all output expressions, including the representation of graphics.
- The options controlling the size specify the level of complexity at which to begin eliding parts of the output rather than the exact count of elements in the output.
- Speak["str"] sends "str" to the speech engine. Speak[HoldForm["str"]] speaks a processed version of the string, affected by the options.
- Speak[Unevaluated[expr]] also speaks the held form of expr.
- The text string that is sent to the speech engine on your computer system is given by SpokenString[expr,Options[Speak],"PostProcess"->False].
