Convert spoken audio to text. The API can be directed to turn on and recognise audio coming from the microphone in real-time, recognise audio coming from a different real-time audio source or to recognise audio from within a file. In all cases, real-time streaming is available, so as the audio is being sent to the server, partial recognition results are also being returned.
The Speech to Text API enables you to build smart apps which are voice triggered. To see how it works select your target language then click on the microphone and start speaking. Or simply click on one of the sample speech phrases to see how speech recognition works.
