SpeechSynthesisUtterance.onresume

Experimental

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The onresume property of the SpeechSynthesisUtterance interface represents an event handler that will run when a paused utterance is resumed (when the resume event fires.)

This occurs when the SpeechSynthesis.resume() method is invoked on a paused speech synthesis instance.

Syntax

speechSynthesisUtteranceInstance.onresume = function() { ... };

Examples

var synth = window.speechSynthesis;

var inputForm = document.querySelector('form');
var inputTxt = document.querySelector('input');
var voiceSelect = document.querySelector('select');

var voices = synth.getVoices();

  ...

inputForm.onsubmit = function(event) {
  event.preventDefault();

  var utterThis = new SpeechSynthesisUtterance(inputTxt.value);
  var selectedOption = voiceSelect.selectedOptions[0].getAttribute('data-name');
  for(i = 0; i < voices.length ; i++) {
    if(voices[i].name === selectedOption) {
      utterThis.voice = voices[i];
    }
  }

  synth.speak(utterThis);

  utterThis.onresume = function(event) {
    console.log('Speech resumed after ' + event.elapsedTime + ' milliseconds.');
  }

  inputTxt.blur();
}
