We are retiring the standard version of Custom Voice on 29th February 2024

Published date: 24 February, 2021

Custom Voice currently supports both standard and neural tiers of Speech service within Azure Cognitive Services. However, since the neural tier enables you to build higher quality voice models while requiring less data and provides measures to help you deploy AI responsibly, we are retiring the standard tier on 29th February 2024. Learn about neural tier (Custom Neural Voice) here

Action required 

Please follow the steps to transition to neural tier of Custom Voice model (Custom Neural Voice) before 29th February 2024. After 29th February 2024, your standard tier Custom Voice models will no longer be supported.
