resume

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

The resume event of the Web Speech API SpeechSynthesisUtterance object is fired when a paused utterance is resumed.

Bubbles No
Cancelable No
Target objects SpeechSynthesisUtterance
Interface SpeechSynthesisEvent

Examples

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

Inheritance

The resume event implements the SpeechSynthesisEvent interface, which inherits from Event. It therefore has available the properties and methods defined on both these interfaces.
