      • The es-MX Voice Raul, Apollo has a bug reading some tildes.

        The text "Paciente P2, Posición 6" spoken by teh Raul, Apollo voice is ignoring the tilde. If I write the word "Posición" alone, the voice read it correctly.

                  • Bond.IO DLL error on latest version of Bing.Speech assembly

                    Version 2.0.2 of this installs Bond assemblies version 7.0.1, however when using "RecognizeAsync" it looks for version 1.0.0.0 of the Bond.IO.Dll which obviously doesn't exist. This is easily reproducible by taking the SpeechClientSample and updating the Microsoft.Speech.Bing nuget package to the latest 'Stable' build.

                    • Support for different PCM sample rates (8kHz) in CreateSpeechRecognizerWithStream

                      If you create a recognizer with CreateSpeechRecognizerWithStream, you need to provide an AudioInputStreamFormat. This class only supports 16000 for SamplesPerSec. I'd like to have support for 8000 to be able to hook directly to a VoIP call. I was able to get it working with nAudio, but it needs an inline transcode, which can be expensive.

                        Hi,
                        I wanted to know if you could add a Speech Client Library for Xamarin with features such as intermediate results during recognition.
                        Thanks!

                        • InitialSilenceTimeout error

                          When sending a request I get the InitialSilenceTimeout error with Duration and Offset both 0. That would indicate there is a problem with my audio file but that couldn't be true! I'm using WAV files with 16 bit PCM encoding and 16 kHz sampling rate. Could someone please tell me what could be the problem and/or point to a speech file or database that is proven to be working. Thank you!

                                  • I downloaded files from Github, ran npm install etc, but just kept receiving "Speech Recognition SDK not found"

                                    Followed GitHub's direction for the download and install, got a new key from you, entered the key in each of the scripts that required keys. But continued to receive the same "Speech Recognition SDK not found" message even though I can see it in the directory as GitHub states. By the way, your 7 day FREE is lame.

                                      • I need to capture speaker voice immediately and feed it as input to the API instead of recording, converting to .wav, saving..etc

                                        Hi, I am using Bing Speech API. For the Speech to Text I need to capture speaker voice immediately and feed it as input to the API instead of recording, converting to .wav mono 16-Bit 17 Khz format, saving....etc. We need user to speak and then program to capture speech immediately and pass it to the API.
