GitHub - Azure-Samples/cognitive-services-speech-sdk: Sample code for the Microsoft Cognitive Servic...

“The Microsoft Cognitive Services Speech SDK sample project is a valuable repository that provides developers with a series of rich examples to help them quickly get started and effectively utilize functions such as speech recognition, speech translation, and speech synthesis. This project not only includes a basic quick start guide but also demonstrates how to create custom voice assistants and how to use the SDK for more complex speech recognition and intent recognition.


Cross-platform compatibility is a highlight of this project. It supports running on Windows 10, Linux, Android, Mac x64, Mac M1 arm64, and iOS devices, which means developers can test and deploy their applications on a variety of devices, ensuring that users can have a consistent experience no matter which platform they use.

The process of obtaining a subscription key is also very simple. The project documentation provides detailed instructions on how to set up the SDK and obtain the required subscription key, allowing developers to easily run the samples on their own machines.

In addition, the project also provides examples of using REST API directly, which means developers can utilize the capabilities of speech services without installing the SDK. This provides great convenience for those developers who wish to quickly integrate speech functions into their applications.


In summary, this project is an excellent starting point, opening the door for developers to explore and realize the potential of speech technology. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced developer, you can gain valuable knowledge and inspiration from this project to turn the heat of AIGC into practical application results. Therefore, I highly recommend this project to everyone interested in speech technology. It can not only help you get started quickly but also inspires you to create more innovative application scenarios."
