Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add a speech-to-text capability to your applications. You can use Amazon Transcribe to create text transcripts of audio and video files. Starting today, you can designate your own S3 buckets to store transcription outputs rather than S3 buckets maintained by the Amazon Transcribe service. This allows you to maintain finer-grained control of your data across your entire transcription workflow.
