Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add speech-to-text capabilities to your applications. Today, we are excited to launch Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and Korean language support for Transcribe streaming. To deliver streaming transcriptions with low latency for these languages, we are also announcing availability of Amazon Transcribe streaming in the South America (Sao Paulo), Asia Pacific (Tokyo) and Asia Pacific (Seoul) regions. Now you can transcribe live media content in these languages with ease.  

Live streaming transcriptions can be applied to a diverse set of use cases in contact centers, media production, and legal proceedings. For example, contact centers can use transcriptions to trigger a set of next best actions to assist agents in resolving calls. Media customers can make their live broadcasts accessible with real-time captions. Video game companies can use streaming transcription to meet accessibility requirements for in-game chat, helping players who are hearing-impaired. In the legal domain, courtrooms can leverage real-time transcriptions to enable stenography, while lawyers can also make legal annotations on top of live transcripts for deposition purposes.
