Speech Application Programming Interface

(programming, standard)
(SAPI) Microsoft's standard API for speech synthesis and speech recognition in Windows 95. The idea is to let developers try out and use various low-level speech software from any number of verndors, while retaining the same API.

Mike Rozak is the lead of the SAPI project at Microsoft. Numerous major speech vendors have announced SAPI-support plans. SRAPI, the competing speech recognition API by Lotus/WordPerfect, is fast becoming obsolete.
