Amazon Transcribe, the automatic speech recognition service from Amazon Web Services, now supports real-time speech-to-text transcription for US Spanish. This enhances language support for the service and makes it easier for organizations to transcribe live Spanish-language content.
- Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition service that can transcribe audio recordings into text.
- The service previously supported US English and several other languages, but now also supports US Spanish in real-time.
- This means that organizations can use Amazon Transcribe to transcribe live Spanish-language content, such as speeches, webinars, and broadcasts.
- Amazon Transcribe uses machine learning to transcribe speech, and can handle different accents, dialects, and background noise.
- The addition of real-time US Spanish speech-to-text support is part of Amazon’s efforts to enhance language support for its AWS services.
- How weird is it that we almost now kind of ‘expect’ this to be normal
- First translation, then transcription, like talking to text on your phone, now it’s realtime
- So back and forth in like zoom, skype, etc – barriers are coming down to connecting everyone
