Speech to Text
May I know what is the difference between Speech lab apps and google speech to text apps? There is also Android version speech to text apps which can download from Google Play. What is the advantage of speech lab over these similar products?
Thank you very much
Hey @wang_jianwu, most speech-to-text APIs need you to stick to one language for each transcription session. Speech Lab adds a mixed-language mode (we call this CodeSwitch) that allows you to transcribe audio with a speaker switching between English and Mandarin within the same session. That is, the engine can transcribe casual Singlish-Manadarin speech.
We're also happy to chat if you need a domain-specific language model (that recognises domain-specific terms), or if you want to keep your data off the cloud by deploying locally.
Is there a particular use-case you're looking to support?
I just contribute to the docs for this project :), so I can answer _some_ technical questions but probably not more specific questions.
