Azure Speech Services REST API v3.0 is now available



Azure [Azure Speech Services REST API v3.0]( is now available, along with several new features. Azure Speech Services is the unification of speech-to-text, text-to-speech, and speech-translation into a single Azure subscription. Easily enable any of the services for your applications, tools, and devices with the [Speech SDK](, [Speech Devices SDK](, or [REST APIs]( New features include: * **Notifications-Webhooks**—All running processes of the service now support webhook notifications. REST API v3.0 provides the calls to enable you to register your webhooks where notifications are sent. * **Update models behind endpoints**—The API now updates the way model deployments are handled. Some scenarios require continued data gathering, periodic adaptation, and redeployment in regular intervals. * **Adapt with multiple data sets—**Adapt a model using multiple data set combinations of acoustic, language, and pronunciation data with the updated API. * **Bring your own storage—**Use your own storage accounts for logs, transcription files, and other data. Use the updated REST API to: * Copy models to other subscriptions in case you want colleagues to have access to a model you built, or in cases where you want to deploy a model to more than one region. * Transcribe data from a container (bulk transcription) as well as provide multiple audio file URLs. * Upload data from Azure Storage accounts through the use of a SAS Uri. * Get logs per endpoint if logs have been requested for that endpoint. * Request the manifest of the models you create, for the purpose of setting up on-premises containers.
