Speech to Text engine: is compatible with sounds played by the PC (not mic involved)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning everyone,

    Is it possible to train and set the sound source not from a mic but directly from a pre-recorded video (e.g. youtube), or a webinar that includes sounds and get that text captured as 'captions'?


    So is this setup actually possible even if there is not a physical microphone as sound source?

    Or am I forced to use a to use a 3.5mm male to male audio cable and feed the audio in that way, treating it more like a microphone?

    Kind regards,

    Bgeek

    Thanks for the post!

     

    It is possible to perform speech recognition directly from an audio file instead of the microphone, please refer to:

    Using WAV File Input with SR Engines

    Hi Miya,

    Thanks for the reply.

    However I'm not a technician: is speech recognition directly from an audio file comparable than playing a sound from a web site such as youtube or streaming video?

  • Hi BGeek,

    I'm afraid it cannot performed directly from the audio file.

    Hi Miya,

     

    Sorry but I really don't understand your reply: above you wrote:

    " It is possible to perform speech recognition directly from an audio file instead of the microphone, please refer to:

    Using WAV File Input with SR Engines

     "

    Now it seems you are affirming the opposite. Any explanation, please?

  • Hi BGeek,

    That article I recommended is related to developping, if you're a developper, you can try that method to use the AR engines. It's complicated for the non-developper.

    There's no function or program in Windows 7 can directly recognize from the audio file, so I said "I'm afraid it cannot performed directly from the audio file".

    Hope you can understand this.

    Regards,

    Miya
