Amazon Transcribe Now Supports Automatic Language Identification

In 2017, we launched Amazon Transcribe, an automatic speech recognition service that makes it easy for developers to add a speech-to-text capability to their applications. Since then, we added support for more languages, enabling customers globally to transcribe audio recordings in 31 languages, including 6 in real-time.
A popular use case for Amazon Transcribe is transcribing customer calls. This allows companies to analyze the transcribed text using natural language processing techniques to detect sentiment or to identify the most common call causes. If you operate in a country with multiple official languages or across multiple regions, your audio files can contain different languages. Thus, files have to be tagged manually with the appropriate language before transcription can take place. This typically involves setting up teams of multi-lingual speakers, which creates additional costs and delays in processing audio files.
The media and entertainment industry often uses Amazon Transcribe to convert media content

Amazon Transcribe Now Generally Available

At AWS re:Invent 2017 we launched Amazon Transcribe in private preview. Today we’re excited to make Amazon Transcribe generally available for all developers. Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition service (ASR) that makes it easy for developers to add speech to text capabilities to their applications. We’ve iterated on customer feedback in the preview to make a number of enhancements to Amazon Transcribe.

To start off we’ve made the SampleRate parameter optional which means you only need to know the file type of your media and the input language. We’ve added two new features – the ability to differentiate multiple speakers in the audio to provide more intelligible transcripts (“who spoke when”), and a custom vocabulary to improve the accuracy of speech recognition for product names, industry-specific terminology, or names of individuals. To refresh our memories on how Amazon Transcribe works lets look

Amazon Transcribe – Accurate Speech To Text At Scale

Today we’re launching a private preview of Amazon Transcribe, an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for developers to add speech to text capabilities to their applications. As bandwidth and connectivity improve, more and more of the world’s data is stored in video and audio formats. People are creating and consuming all of this data faster than ever before. It’s important for businesses to have some means of deriving value from all of that rich multimedia content. With Amazon Transcribe you can save on the costly process of manual transcription with an efficient and scalable API.
You can analyze audio files stored on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) in many common formats (WAV, MP3, Flac, etc.) by starting a job with the API. You’ll receive detailed and accurate transcriptions with timestamps for each word, as well as inferred punctuation. During the preview you can use the asynchronous transcription
