General availability: Announcing the release of Swiss German dialect speech recognition support
Published date: 04 October, 2021
Microsoft speech service just released the de-CH locale for speech to text. It focuses on the Swiss market needs and recognizes Swiss dialects as well as standard German. The output text is in standard German.
Jointly with Microsoft’s Swiss dialect text to speech offering, we empower the creation of smart speech solutions tailored to Swiss people’s needs.
While most of our competitors do not support Swiss dialects but only standard German, we went a step ahead to satisfy Switzerland’s reality. Our speech model can deal with the continuum of Swiss German dialects and additionally, it can be customized to support any specific use case.
