Daily API RoundUp: Google Search, Checklick, CoverWallet, BabbleLabs

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb's directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there's a listing in one of our directories that you'd like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Insurance, Calendars, and Search. Highlights include the Google Search Indexing API and the BabbleLabs Clear Cloud API for speech enhancement. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

BabbleLabs provides speech enhancement services. The BabbleLabs Clear Cloud API allows developers to utilize speech enhancement for common format video and audio. It provides a way to enhance streaming audio content, upload an audio file to be enhanced, download the enhanced version, upload a video file with embedded audio to be enhanced, download the enhanced version and enhance the audio in the context of a video stream. BabbleLabs files are processed via cloud API in Google Cloud. The following audio and video formats are supported: wav, mp3, aac, ogg, aiff, mp4 and mov. This API is listed under the Audio category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Audio APIs.
