The Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services Speech Services API enables real-time transcription of audio streams into text. It allows your applications, tools, or devices to consume, display, and take action on, command input to the Speech-to-text service. This service is powered by the recognition technology that is used for Cortana and Office, and works with the translation and text-to-speech services as well. Requests to the Speech Services API can only contain 10 seconds of recorded audio and returns final results, as partial results are not supported. It provides a way to capture audio from a microphone, read from a stream, and more. Azure supports reinforcement learning, a set of techniques that performs artificial intelligence optimization based on your configuration. It allows you to integrate cloud services to develop, test, deploy, and manage applications, and utilize the efficiencies of cloud computing. Azure is a complete cloud platform to host your existing applications, streamline the development of new applications, and enhance on-premises applications.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
