Enable in-person meeting transcription. Conversation transcription captures speech in real time so that all meeting participants can fully engage in the discussion, identify who said what, when and quickly follow up on next steps.
Use conversation transcription to:
- Capture speech from all around the meeting room.
- Help safeguard data with industry-leading security and compliance certifications.
- Support meeting and conference setups that use microphones and video cameras, through pairing with the Speech Devices SDK.

Want to build this?
Convert spoken audio to text. Call the API to recognise audio coming from the microphone, from other real-time streaming audio sources or from a recorded audio file. As audio is sent to the server, partial recognition results will be returned if requested.
You can use the API to build voice-triggered smart apps. Try the demo 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.*

Custom speech service: Speech transcription with custom model
Overcome speech recognition barriers such as speaking style, vocabulary and background noise. Our speech recognition technologies combine multiple APIs to produce the text output. Customers can customise the APIs to their needs and available data.

Create custom language models tailored to users’ speaking styles
Don’t let varied vocabularies and speaking styles block understanding. Customise the language model of your app’s speech recognition by tailoring it to your industry expressions, technical, geography or market terms, and even speaker style.
Adapt to user environment with custom acoustic models
Make sure that your app’s speech recognition can function in all environments. With custom acoustic models, you can account for background noise and match your users’ expected environments.
Use robust speech models from Microsoft
Enable powerful, personalised speech recognition by building your own customised speech recognition models on top of Microsoft’s existing state-of-the-art models.
Explore a speech scenario
With Speech Services, it’s easy to transcribe every call. Index the transcription for full-text search, or apply Text Analytics to detect sentiment, language and key phrases for insights. If your call centre recordings involve specialist terminology, such as product names or IT jargon, create a custom language model to teach Speech Services the vocabulary. A custom acoustic model helps Speech Services understand speakers even with background noise or poor phone connections.
