Overall Satisfaction with Azure Cognitive Speech Services

It is one of the most advanced software available. Through its advanced features, it recognizes even distorted noise efficiently. We can effectively convert speech-to-text and text-to-voice, which helps us communicate, make notes, and accurately discover requirements.
  • The free version provides up to five hours of audio and allows you to create one custom voice model per month.
  • Microsoft's language processing system justifies the cost of the software - it recognizes even faint and distorted sound in many cases.
  • It works with many languages and dialects which helps understand many speeches.
  • The software is not user-friendly- it has a complicated interface and requires a lot of training to set up.
  • The pricing is also costly - so for an individual user, not on a company plan, this is not affordable.
  • Text-to-Speech module
  • Speech-to-text module
  • It helps us catch requirements and make notes so that we don't forget when drawing out proposals.
  • Also helps us with targeted pitches and helps save time.

Azure Cognitive Speech Services can work with many languages and dialects, making it imperative for people working with multi-lingual clients. It also helps to catch speeches while conversing in meetings. The setup is complicated, which is why for a novice user - it is not an easy endeavor to use. The pricing is also high.
