|(programming, standard)||Speech Application Programming Interface - (SAPI) Microsoft's standard API
for speech synthesis and speech recognition in Windows 95.

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.
