Cognitive Services Pricing – Content Moderator API

Use intelligence APIs to enable vision, speech, language and knowledge capabilities

Content moderator enhances your ability to detect potentially offensive or unwanted images through machine-learning based classifiers, customised blacklists and optical character recognition (OCR). It helps you detect potential profanity in more than 100 languages and match text against your customised lists automatically. Content Moderator also checks for possible personally identifiable information (PII). Each Text API call can contain up to 1,024 characters each. Scan images (minimum 128 pixels, maximum 4 MB size) for adult and racy content, optical character recognition (OCR) and face detection. You can also match against customised image lists. Each API call is a transaction.

FAQs

Content moderator

  • When using the API, images need to have a minimum of 128 pixels and a maximum file size of 4 MB. Text can be at most 1024 characters long.

  • Human review tool is included in your subscription.

General

  • Bing Search APIs are invoiced based on number of transactions (also known as API calls). These plans are pay-as-you-go and don’t incur additional costs for complex queries and more than 10 results (up to 50 results in most cases).

  • If you happen to exceed the mentioned number of transactions per second (TPS), your usage will be throttled to be within the mentioned limit. If your application needs to have higher TPS than the ones mentioned on this page, please get in touch with the Azure support team.

  • For billing purposes, a transaction is a successful Bing API call request (though there are caveats for DoS attacks). For logging and reporting purposes such as for the Bing Statistics Add-in, it is any Bing API call irrespective of whether it is successful or not.

  • You can change the tier of service at any time. Please make sure that you use appropriate keys in your API calls. If you are having enterprise agreement with Microsoft, please work with your account executive.
