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 Thai and Hindi language support for streaming audio transcriptions. These new languages expand the coverage of Amazon Transcribe streaming and enable customers to reach a broader global audience.

Live streaming transcription is used across industries in contact center applications, broadcast events, meetings captions, and e-learning. For example, contact centers use transcription to remove the need for note taking and improve agent productivity by providing recommendations for next best action. Companies 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 use Amazon Transcribe to help moderate content and detect inappropriate speech in user-generated content.

Amazon Transcribe for streaming transcriptions is 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). You can learn more by checking out the Amazon Transcribe documentation or visit the AWS console to try it out.
