Microsoft Speech Engine (SpeechLib)

I am building a talking application and would like to use some of the phonetic capabilities of the objects contained within the library to improve the spoken word.

I am aware that one can add pronunciation guides in the text you pass to the speech enging,  but would like to retrieve the pronunciation rules that the engine applied to the passed in text.  The idea is that I would like to see how the engine resolves pronunciation issues to improve my ability to add these "hints" to the text myself.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

These are interesting,  but I do not think they address my questions.  That is, how can I see the pronunciation rule for a give string that I passed to the speech engine.  I would like to see hints that are used by the engine to learn and modify my own hinting of text.
No other takers came forth either.
I have no idea how to see hints that are used by the engine.
