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, custom blacklists, and optical character recognition (OCR). It helps you detect potential profanity in more than 100 languages and match text against your custom 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 4MB size) for adult and racy content, optical character recognition (OCR) and face detection. You can also match against custom image lists. Each API call is a transaction.
