public interface Engine extends ExtensionObject
As it is mentioned previously, this interface mostly takes care of creating the engine channels for speech synthesizing. Normally LUWRAIN may request any number of speech channels of any particular engine and all of them must work completely independently.
Whenever creation of a new channel is requested, LUWRAIN provides
a map of channel parameters. The purpose of these parameters is
engine-dependent, LUWRAIN does not impose any exact meaning.
Typically the entire list of speech channel parameters is specified by
a user through the control panel or through the command line
arguments. The engine itself is addressed by its name, which is the
same as the name of
In addition the
Engine interface provides an set of engine features
helping the core to understand what this engine can do. LUWRAIN does
not expect that all engines support all features, it's absolutely
normal to have some engines with partial functionality.
