  1. Using Custom voice font based on a different locale

    My goal is to translate translated text to speech using a voice as close as the original speeker. Since the speaker doesn't speak the target language, I can not create a custom voice font for the targeting locale. I saw a Microsoft demo a few years ago, seeming give a english speaker his own voice to speak Chinese. I wonder how that is done.

    • Xamarin supported sdk

      I want to use the Cognitive speech service (real-time continuous speech to text and interim results) in the **Xamarin** app. Is there any SDKs or plugin available? Since REST API has some limitations (no interim results), i am unable to go with it.

      • Acoustic model support for languages "de-DE" and "fr-FR"

        The standard speech service isn't enough specific. Hence, we want to train the Microsoft Custom Speech Service (CRIS) for dynamic conditions in a non-english environmnent - at first for locale "de-DE" later for "fr-FR". But there is no support for the two languages currently.
        Otherwise for creating language model the locales "de-DE" and "fr-FR" are available.

        • Confidence / probability value per recognized word or fragment

          A confidence number value per word or per speech fragment would be very interesting. Because with this confidence value it would be possible to get self-assessments of the Microsoft speech service, if it recognizes the word or the fragment correctly or not. Unfortunately I didn't found a such possibility.

          • Add the ability to version the same endpoint

            Add the ability to deploy new versions of the same endpoint have updateable stage/prod endpoints (like LUIS) so that we can easily swap models under an endpoint without needing to adapt the application that uses it.

            • Add the ability to collaborate on the same projects (datasets, models and enpoints)

              We are multiple users with a company account subscription for the cognitive services. We would like to be able to collaborate on the same datasets, models and endpoints. LUIS currently supports this, but CRIS doesn't.

              • Does‘not it support Chinese and English mixing?

                I need to create a custom language model, which is based on Chinese. But there may be some English words in the sentence.
                E.g. "如何使用Veeva?"

                  • Add the ability to provide a custom dictionary

                    Right now, our only option when we simply want to provide a custom set of words that are not commonly used in the English language (E.G. medical terms), our only option is to upload the dictionary as if it was a set of transcriptions, which creates a bias as it does not contain full sentences. Creating full sentences from these terms can be a long and painful process (around 100k words in the dictionary)

                    • Create a C# SDK for the WebSocket with the Speech Protocol

                      With the C# SDKs and endpoints now deprecated, there is not supported SDK for C#. It would be great to have the support for the Speech Protocol in C#.

                      • Provide an API to fetch the logs with audio (endpoint data export)

                        It would be nice to be able to programmatically pull the audio logs from the system so that we may re-train the system with all utterances if something goes wrong.

                          • I would like to build a customm language model based on a grammar rather than a set of examples. Is there any support for this?

                            I would like to build a customm language model based on a grammar rather than a set of examples. Is there any support for this?

                            For example: all speech will start with a page direction request (e.g. ' go to page', 'show me page', 'show me') followed by a page specification, which will either be a number or a letter followed by a number.

                                Pay as you go pricing. The Scale Out option is $6.452/day. However what if I only need to scale out for 2-4 hours a day (and none on weekends?)

                                Please consider a pay-per-usage model. That would be amazing!!!

                                *Also the calculator is broken (it does not multiply the $6 x 31 days)

                                Thanks!

                                      • configuring custom speech to recognize selected English phonemes.

                                        Can the custom speech service be configured to recognize selected English phonemes? Our university lab needs this capability to enhance our English training program for slum dwelling disadvantaged youth
