Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add a speech-to-text capability to your applications. Starting today, you have the ability to conveniently delete completed transcription jobs. This gives you end-to-end control over your transcription jobs and for how long your output transcripts are stored.

Using the AWS Management console, you can now select a specific transcription job and delete it. The operation is synchronous, meaning that the deletion will happen immediately. There is no need to listen for an event. You can also do this programmatically by using our latest SDK. Simply invoke the deleteTranscriptionJob method and specify the job name.
