To retrieve the name pronunciation file available from a person's profile, use the audio file link returned in the entry document.
You can retrieve name pronunciation file for any person in your organization. You will still have to authenticate when you make the request if the server is set up to force all traffic to use SSL. See Authenticating requests
for information about how to authenticate the request.
To retrieve a name pronunciation file from a profile, complete the following steps:
1. Get the service document for the person's profile. See Retrieving the Profiles service document.
2. From the service document, get the URI for the profiles feed which is specified in the href attribute of the collection element and use it to get the profiles feed for the user.
3. In the returned feed, find the value of the href attribute for the link element where the rel attribute has the value "http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/sn/pronunciation" .../>. Alternatively, use the URI specified in the "Request Details" table below.
rel="http://www.ibm.com/xmlns/prod/sn/pronunciation" type="audio" />
4. Use this link to send a GET request to retrieve a name pronunciation file from a profile.
You will need a REST client that supports a binary stream of the media file you are trying to retrieve. Also, there is no ATOM xml payload needed for this operation.
The output of this operation will be a binary audio file
