"It's not free but it does Speech2Text"

What do you like best?

First of all it is nice to have Speech2Text cloud service and API that you can use for your videos or audio files. The API is availbale for the most platforms which is nice.

The support is good and answers to issues quickly.

The service does a good job, but of course it's not perfect. so don't expect a perfect conversion of every word.

What do you dislike?

There are various limitations, especially if you are not using Googles cloud storage. So you will not be able to send a 30 minutes track at once to the service. So you will have to split the file into chunks to overcome the limitations. I would recommend extracting the audiio track form your videos and send them as a FLAC audio file to the service, this also saves money, since there are differnt charges for video and audio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You get a free amount of minutes, so it's free to just try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented a Speech2Text solution for one of our customers usings the API.

We are creating VTT for videos and audio files. This means creating subtitles for videos automatically and beeing able to index the text for the search engine.

"Great Accuracy and Performance, No offline support "

What do you like best?

Having done some light testing of the accuracy of the service I can say that the transcriptions are very good. Also, the API allows several configuration options which can potentially improve performance for your use case.

What do you dislike?

The major use case missing from the service is offline support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Google Cloud Speech API provides an inexpensive way to get access to highly accurate speech to text transcription. We are using the resulting transcription as an input to a variety of services and projects being developed at my company.

"Slow to process, but accurate."

What do you like best?

Easy to use once installed, relatively accurate. We used it as part of a biomedical device with speech control using Python.

What do you dislike?

Very difficult to download, and minimal documentation for working on issues. We had significant issues installing the API and figuring out how to get it started. There wasn’t much instruction on how to solve common issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared for a lot of trouble shooting during set up, and a lot of research into how to solve the problems, since they’re not always readily available on Google’s site.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used in device development, particularly biomedical devices

Fast processing time.

Support formats such as WAV, Speex and Opus.

You have to use Googles cloud storage or you will be limited.

We used the Cloud Speech API to get almost real-time transcriptions of our dealers’ chats with customers; these transcriptions have helped us to increase sales.
