    • 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.

        • More dialect driven english-based Quantum apis should be implemented perhaps do a screen testing or focus group study on heavily accented in

          Perhaps the study group is needed here and perhaps several study groups from several different countries is needed as well all heavily speaking English

          • en-in Language low quality mainly in bidirectional conversations and noises

            We have experienced very low quality/accuracy in en-in India English Language base models, mainly on the bidirectional conversations with noises, over-lap conversations, etc., mainly from the call centre audios, phone calls, mobile conversations.

            uni-directional/one-way conversations like demo/webinar/presentations quality/accuracy is better as compared with the en-us USA English.

            Early adaption of this service is being most awaited for our business requirements, willing to share the insights/sample audios files for analysis and improvements.

              • Confused about 3 parameters in request header

                I'm new to Azure, and trying to use Text to Speech programmatically.

                According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/Speech/api-reference-rest/bingvoiceoutput#VoiceSynthesisRequest, I want to know how I get values of X-Search-AppId, X-Search-ClientID and User-Agent? And what does application mean in description? Should I get those values from Azure Portal, or just generate random ones?

                Thanks in advance!

                • AndroidClient error (Coexistence of Twilio SDK and Speech To Text SDK)

                  If you introduce Twilio in Android's client application and co-exist the Microsoft Speech To Text library of Cognitive Services in the same project, an error occurs at the time of launching the application and it crashes.
                  If you do not initialize Twilio Client, Speech To Text works normally, commenting out the productFlavors of build.gradle and using Speech To Text works Twilio normally.
                  Why does an error occur when both libraries coexist?
                  Can you tell me if there is a way to coexist?

                    • Better pronunciation

                      We have a client that is upset because they received a call about one of their children whose name was pronounced wrong. The child's name was "Nicarri", but Bing pronounced it "Nicker", and the parent who received the call thought it was a racial slur.
                      I attached a recording of a test call (not the actual call).

                        • Diagnostic messages when responding

                          I have been unable to implement the system in Java because there are no diagnostic messages to even give a hint as to where the streaming data I am sending is wrong. Hence I have given up and will use two other different APIs, both of which work.

                          • ARM64 version of libandroid_platform.so is needed

                            Your SDK cannot be used with the vast majority of current Android hardware.

                            Your team has commented elsewhere (Github?) that you intend to open source this portion of the product rather than provide prebuilt binaries. If that's true could you give a date for when it will happen?

                                We know that Text to Speech is supported in Korean.

                                However, Speech to Text does not support Korean. Only English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish are in the list. There is no Korean in the list. Please add Korean.

                                    PAI used AudioRecord to record, but did not return an instance to us and did not return the volume of the recording. We need to get the volume to show to the user.

                                    How do we deal with it?

                                    Thanks

                                        On the front end i am using html, css, js, jquery.

                                        I want to fill the form by using text input . as well as the actions should take place like navigating to a particular page.
