Public preview: Speech SDK 0.5.0 for Cognitive Services

Monday, July 16, 2018

The 0.5.0 update to the Speech SDK for Azure Cognitive Services was just released in preview. 

This update adds support for UWP (on Windows version 1709), .NET Standard 2.0 (on Windows), and Java on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow, API  level 23) or later. It also includes feature changes and bug fixes. Most notably, we now support long-running audio and automatic reconnection. This will make the Speech service more resilient in the event of time-out, network failures, or service errors. We’ve also improved error messages to make it easier to handle errors. For details, see the release notes.

You can try the Microsoft Speech service for free. To learn more and review sample code, see the documentation page.
