Transcribe Short Audio

Make sure you have completed Set Up step before proceeding with this guide.

In this example, we will transcribe a short audio (< 60 seconds) using the transcribe_file_short() function and print out the recognized words.

transcribe_file_short.py

from soniox.transcribe_file import transcribe_file_short
from soniox.speech_service import SpeechClient, set_api_key

set_api_key("<YOUR-API-KEY>")


def main():
    with SpeechClient() as client:
        result = transcribe_file_short("../test_data/test_audio.flac", client)
        for word in result.words:
            print(f"{word.text} {word.start_ms} {word.duration_ms}")


if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()

First, set your API key, which you can find under the Manage API Keys tab in Soniox Cloud. You can also set your API key via SONIOX_API_KEY bash variable, which will be then automatically used by the client library.

export SONIOX_API_KEY=<YOUR_API_KEY>

We create a SpeechClient object which handles all the communication between your program and Soniox Cloud. We use the with statement to cleanup the client object after it is no longer needed.

We then call the transcribe_file_short() function with the created client object and a short audio file test_audio.flac (part of soniox_examples GitHub repository). The function reads the entire audio file and sends it to Soniox Cloud for transcription. It returns an instance of the Result structure, which contains the recognized words. Each word is an instance of the Word structure, which contains the text of the recognized word as well as its timestamps.

Run

python3 transcribe_file_short.py

Output

He 170 60
was 350 60
two 650 60
...

In this example, we will transcribe a short audio (< 60 seconds) using the transcribeFileShort() function and print out the recognized words.

transcribe_file_short.js

const { SpeechClient } = require("@soniox/soniox-node");

/**
* Set your Soniox API key:
* from command line: export SONIOX_API_KEY=<YOUR-API-KEY>
* or
* pass config object: new SpeechClient({ api_key: "<YOUR-API-KEY>" })
*/
const speechClient = new SpeechClient();

(async function () {
    const result = await speechClient.transcribeFileShort(
        "../test_data/test_audio.flac"
    );

    for (const word of result.words) {
        console.log(`${word.text} ${word.start_ms} ${word.duration_ms}`);
    }
})();
