Microsoft recently released .NET 8 as an LTS (long term support) release that provides an extended runway for application development and deployment with this runtime.
.NET 8 and C# 12 introduce new features and optimizations for application deployments on desktop and cloud platforms. New Chant assemblies are available for developing applications with .NET 8.
It is real easy to develop .NET apps that speak and listen. Configure the application project:
- Add project references to the Chant .NET assemblies.
- Add code using references to the Chant .NET assemblies.
- Copy applicable Chant runtime speech API DLL(s) to the application executable folder.
