Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Speech is an AI service that applies ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) technology to transform audio-based content to text. Developers can easily make API calls to integrate OCI Speech’s pretrained models into their applications. OCI Speech can be used for accurate, text-normalized, time-stamped transcription via the Console and REST APIs as well as CLI or SDKs. You can also use OCI Speech in a Data Science notebook session. With OCI Speech, you can filter profanities, get confidence scores for both single words and complete transcriptions, and more.
OCI Speech uses automatic speech recognition, a deep learning process, to derive accurate transcription from natural conversations. Get started easily by using prebuilt acoustic and language models that don’t require users to have data science experience.
Search, index, and decipher data buried in your audio files. Convert recorded audio conversations to textual data to analyze with AI services. For example, you can use OCI Language to retrieve the sentiment and OCI Speech’s anomaly detection capabilities to identify chances of customer churn.
OCI Speech ASR models support English, Spanish, and Portuguese, so you can transcribe your audio files in your preferred languages.
Eliminate reliance on third-party transcription offerings and practice more control over your data with end-to-end security and compliance.
OCI Speech is a versatile service that can be called via REST APIs, different SDKs, and Oracle CLI. Developers can easily deploy a scalable speech service without having data science or ML expertise.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Speech protects our customers’ privacy. Prebuilt automatic speech recognition models transcribe your content, but do not store any data for training, debugging, or other purposes.
OCI Speech uses proprietary models and architecture that enables fast conversion for speech into text.
We added a word-level confidence score to help you identify words that might have been transcribed incorrectly. Use the word confidence score to determine where to focus when building an application.
We added prebuilt word filtering using a curated list of profanities. You can either mask, remove, or tag profanities.
Automatically provide in-workflow closed caption on OCI platform for all content created and curated by digital media service. Index your content using OCI speech for easy search across your content.
OCI Speech can transcribe customer calls for easy search and retrieval of information. Use OCI Language and Anomaly Detection together to detect sentiment and identify customer churn and staff training opportunities.

Today, we are happy to announce three new capabilities for the Speech service at no additional cost: native support for 8kHz audio files, support for output in the SRT (a closed- caption file format), and automatic punctuation of output text. These new capabilities are now available in all OCI's commercial regions and are part of our commitment to provide high-quality, affordable transcription for our customers.Read the full article
