Amazon Transcribe adds support for AMR, Ogg and WebM file formats

By GIXnews

Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add speech-to-text capabilities to your applications. Today, we are excited to announce native support for media files in AMR, AMR-WB, Ogg and WebM format by Amazon Transcribe. Previously, you were required to convert these file formats into supported formats like WAV, FLAC, MP3 or MP4 which added extra costs and scaling challenges for large workloads. You can now directly submit media files in AMR, AMR-WB, Ogg, and WebM format to Transcribe APIs. Amazon Transcribe supports OPUS encoded audio for files in Ogg and WebM format.
