Bing Speech Service, Microsoft’s speech recognition and text-to-speech cloud offering, will help users to voice-enable their applications and add a delightful conversational experience. Bing Speech Service has two APIs:

Using REST API—for apps converting short spoken commands (up to 15 seconds) to text without real-time streaming or user feedback.

Using WebSocket API—for apps converting long audio (up to 10 minutes) to text with intermediate results.

  • Text To Speech API—for apps converting text into audio that can be played back to the user.
