"Google Cloud Speech API Review"

What do you like best?

-Easy to use

-Transcriptions are very good

-Fast processing time

-Supports various formats

-Cost

What do you dislike?

To be honest, nothing at all. It is well designed, supported and very robust all at a reasonable price. The problems we encountered during install and going live, were due to internal issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the free trial to see if it is a good fit, you won't be disappointed. We were not sure at first, but our employees, some who have physical challenges (can't type, etc) were absolutely thrilled, before we even finished with the free trial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Transcribing accurate meeting and Board of Directors notes and minutes. Very helpful due to the fact one of the offices is in France and was able to handle with no problems. Provides accessibility for our clients and some of our employees who have a variety of physical challenges.

"It's not free but it does Speech2Text"

What do you like best?

First of all it is nice to have Speech2Text cloud service and API that you can use for your videos or audio files. The API is availbale for the most platforms which is nice.

The support is good and answers to issues quickly.

The service does a good job, but of course it's not perfect. so don't expect a perfect conversion of every word.

What do you dislike?

There are various limitations, especially if you are not using Googles cloud storage. So you will not be able to send a 30 minutes track at once to the service. So you will have to split the file into chunks to overcome the limitations. I would recommend extracting the audiio track form your videos and send them as a FLAC audio file to the service, this also saves money, since there are differnt charges for video and audio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You get a free amount of minutes, so it's free to just try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented a Speech2Text solution for one of our customers usings the API.

We are creating VTT for videos and audio files. This means creating subtitles for videos automatically and beeing able to index the text for the search engine.

What Voice Recognition solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

It isn't perfect. There are times where Ive caught couple errors in the transcription but I understand that it is just how the technology is developing and it already came a long way.

We have client meeting calls where we want to record and transcribe. Google cloud speech API allows us to do that into our servers and it is amazing!

"Slow to process, but accurate."

What do you like best?

Easy to use once installed, relatively accurate. We used it as part of a biomedical device with speech control using Python.

What do you dislike?

Very difficult to download, and minimal documentation for working on issues. We had significant issues installing the API and figuring out how to get it started. There wasn’t much instruction on how to solve common issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared for a lot of trouble shooting during set up, and a lot of research into how to solve the problems, since they’re not always readily available on Google’s site.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used in device development, particularly biomedical devices
