๐Ÿ’Ž ASR improvementsโ€‹

Our newest generation of ASR models using conformer transducer architecture are now in public beta for all users. The new architecture provides significant accuracy gains in word error rate.

๐Ÿ–ฅ CLIโ€‹

Version 0.11.2 released, notable changes:

  • Improved evaluate command output formatting.
  • Updated default config file created when running create.
  • Improved error handling.

๐Ÿ”ฎ Dashboardโ€‹

  • Improved application empty state and onboarding views.
  • Fix a bug where a previously deployed application that is currently in training couldn't be previewed.
  • Fixes to local storage handling.

๐Ÿš€ Streaming & Batch APIโ€‹

As of next week, we're switching to using lowercase letters in the transcript from our APIs. The intent and entities will be unaffected by this, but after the change the contents of the segment.words list would be in lowercase.

If you are currently relying on the transcripts being in uppercase for some feature, please make sure to update that logic. For most users this won't be an issue, though.

๐Ÿ“ Docsโ€‹

Today we are extremely happy to finally announce version 2.0 of our documentation! ๐Ÿฅณ๏ธ

  • We rewrote and restructured most of our content in order to make things clearer and improve the developer experience.
  • The site has a new look and feel with better mobile and dark mode support.
  • Even the search is now better, we hope you'll find what you are looking for :)

A lot of changes to application views:

  • Application views were re-organized and some of them were renamed to better describe their purpose.
  • Download SDKs for Speechly On-device from the Integrate page
