Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that you can use to add speech-to-text capabilities to your applications. Starting today, AWS customers can use AWS PrivateLink to access the Amazon Transcribe real-time streaming API from their Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) without using public IPs, and without requiring the traffic to traverse the Internet. AWS PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs and AWS services, without ever leaving the Amazon network.

Using AWS PrivateLink, you can access Amazon Transcribe streaming API easily and securely by keeping your network traffic within the Amazon network, while significantly simplifying your internal network architecture. You no longer need to use an Internet Gateway, Network Address Translation (NAT) devices, or firewall proxies to connect to Amazon Transcribe.  

You can use real-time streaming transcription to efficiently and accurately generate transcripts for diverse use cases, such as transcribing calls for contact centers, automatically generating captions for live media broadcasts, and capturing meeting notes for business productivity. 

AWS PrivateLink support for Amazon Transcribe real-time streaming is available in all AWS regions where Amazon Transcribe streaming service is available. To learn more, visit the Amazon Transcribe documentation page.
