      • Is there a way to stream audio via WebSocket and get Speech to Text results AND get a copy of the recording on Azure Storage?

        We are currently using Bing Speech with LUIS, but looking to convert to Speech service.

        Right now we have multiple recorders that operate in the browser, Flash, WebRTC, HTML5.

        Each of these has to connect to Bing Speech to Text to get realtime translation and LUIS results to drive actions in the application. Additionally we are currently streaming the audio to Amazon S3. Ideally we would like to stream the audio only once, and have it picked up by Microsoft from Speech to Text AND be able to retrieve a URL for later use.

        Having to maintain two streams has…

        • Please continue to support the Korean language supported by Bing speech api

          I would like to use the new Speech SDK. I am currently using Bing speech API, but if Korean is added, I will change to Speech SDK.

            • Speech Service very high response time

              we are using https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/speech-service/quickstart-js-browser
              for filing user data on screen based on Voice input (recognizeOnceAsync)..but i am facing multiple problems in that
              1. There is no way around to stop recognizer immediately once i speak some words ..it take 4-5 seconds to stop mic processing ..
              2. assume i want to enter user first name based on voice ..but it takes 5-6 to complete the process ,which is not recommendable..need to your inputs to improve it .
              3. Any results returned from Speech service is appended with extra (.) in last of result . not sure why its happening .

              • Xamarin Android & Xamarin IOS SDK

                There are no Xamarin Android & Xamarin IOS SDK for the latest custom speech used by Microsoft.

                We hope we can use the SDK ASAP, since we think Xamarin is one of the Microsoft core product and widely used.

                • need amr to be supported in Speech to Text services

                  I saw that currently only wav audio format is supported.
                  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/speech/getstarted/getstartedrest?tabs=Powershell

                  However, my customer is using Cordova App and the default format in Android Cordova is AMR audio.
                  We hope Azure Speech to Text can accept AMR as well.

                  This cloud services accept various format of audio including AMR, so I think technically it is feasible for Azure.

                    • Connector for PowerApps

                      Please provide a connector which can be used in PowerApps.

                      I have tried to use the service from the demo in an azure function, but this fails currently by an unknown error :(

                      • improve the recognition of numbers

                        The recognition of words like "tenthousend" is "10 1.000" but should be "10000" this is bad if you try to allow an Input of numbers bigger then 1000

                        • captialization

                          This service is not doing a good job of capitalizing the first word in sentences. I say "I ate lunch period it was good" and I get

                          I ate lunch period it was good. This later becomes

                          I ate lunch. it was good

                          For some reason the recognition of a period in punctuation doesn't produce the capitalization of the next sentence.

                          • confidence number value per word or per speech fragment

                            I am doing a POC with speech recognition for long speeches.
                            https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/azure/cognitive-services/speech/concepts#recognition-modes

                            The recognition mode "conversation" with format "detailed" delivers message responses of type "SpeechPhrase" including confidence value.

                            The recognition mode "dictation" with format "detailed" delivers message responses of type "SpeechFragment" and "SpeechPhrase" (including confidence value). But the fragments do not contain any information about confidence value.
                            With the C# service library and the recognition mode "dictation" you'll get partial results with a confidence value (enum). But this is not our desired solution, because the confidence value seems to belong to the whole phrase (Confidence: Indicates the level of confidence…
