This SDK provides an interface to the DOCOMO Speech Recognition API, enabling speech recognition to be added to Android applications. This particular Android SDK contains technologies powered by FueTrek language processing, and provides support up to Android version 4.4. The SDK offers an increased recording time of 30 seconds. The API accepts spoken voice within an audio file, and transcribes the language detected into words.
Google has announced updates to the Cloud Speech API which include the addition of word-level timestamps which means that timestamp information is now available for each word in the transcript. Also, the API now supports long-form audio files up to three hours long and 30 additional languages.
