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 batch API from their Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) without using public IPs or requiring the traffic to traverse the Internet. AWS PrivateLink provides private connectivity between VPCs and AWS services, without ever leaving the Amazon network. With this launch, AWS PrivateLink is now supported for both Batch and Streaming APIs.  

Using AWS PrivateLink, you can access the Amazon Transcribe batch 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 batch transcription to produce transcripts at scale efficiently and accurately for diverse use cases, such as transcribing customer service calls, automatically generating captions for media content, and capturing conference calls or meetings.  

AWS PrivateLink support for the Amazon Transcribe batch API is available in all AWS regions where Amazon Transcribe service is available. To learn more, visit the Amazon Transcribe documentation page
