Speech Application Programming Interface
(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.
