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 announce availability of Amazon Transcribe streaming APIs in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

Live streaming transcription is used across industries in contact center applications, broadcast events, meetings captions, and e-learning. For example, contact centers can use transcription to remove note taking requirements and improve agent productivity by providing recommendations for next best action. Companies can also make their live sports events or real-time meetings more accessible with automatic subtitles. In addition, customers who have a large social media presence can use Amazon Transcribe to help moderate content and detect inappropriate behavior or speech in user-generated content.

With this launch, Amazon Transcribe real-time streaming is now available in the following AWS regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), South America (São Paulo), AWS GovCloud (US-East) and AWS GovCloud (US-West).
