Bing Speech API

Convert speech to text and back again, and understand its intent

Speech recognition

Convert spoken audio to text in real time—whether it’s audio from a file or live through microphone or other audio source. Gain the option for real-time streaming as well, so that, as the audio is being sent to the server, partial recognition results are being returned.

Speech intent recognition

Convert spoken audio to intent that drives actions. Using Language Understanding Intelligent Service models, speech intent recognition lets your application not only convert spoken audio to text, but also easily parse the intent of the speaker to create actions within the app, such as “set an alarm”.

Text to speech conversion

Convert text to spoken audio. When applications need to “talk” back to their users, this API converts text generated by the app into audio that can be played back to the user.
