You have all heard the expression: “software is eating the world.” If that is the case, then AI is the hungriest one at the table. In this course, Microsoft Cognitive Services: Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech API, you will learn how to understand, configure, and utilize the Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech API. First, you will explore what kind of data it accepts and sends. Next, you will discover how to utilize C# to interact with it. Finally, you will dive into the many features that it offers. When you are finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of the Speaker Recognition API and the Big Speech API, which will help you move forward with your overall understanding of the Microsoft Cognitive Services Suite.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Matt Kruczek, and welcome to my course, Azure Cognitive Services: Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech API. I am the VP of Mobile, Web, and AI here at Tallan. In the course, Azure Cognitive Services: Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech API, you will learn to understand, configure, and utilize both the Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech APIs. You will learn the type of data that this API is meant to analyze, what scenarios it's best suited for, and how to program against it. When you're finished with this course, you will have a fundamental knowledge of both the Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech APIs that will help you move forward with your overall understanding of the Azure Cognitive Services suite. Some of major topics that we will cover include understanding the basics of speech APIs, how they work, and what applications they might have in the real world. By the end of this course, you'll know how the Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech API services work, how to sign up for them in Azure, and how to create code that connects to and utilizes them. Before beginning this course, you should have some basic knowledge of C#, Azure, and API endpoints, as well as be able to navigate your way around the Visual Studio IDE. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn the ins and outs of Microsoft's new AI offering, with the Azure Cognitive Services: Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech API course, at Pluralsight.
Understand the Basics of Speech APIs Hi. This is Matt Kruczek with Pluralsight, and this is the first module in a series of modules focused on the Azure Cognitive Services: Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech APIs. In this first module, I will be covering the absolute basics of how the Speaker Recognition and Bing Speech APIs work in order to build a strong foundation for the modules to come. By the end of this module you should have a good preliminary understanding of how the two APIs work, so let's go ahead and get started.
Recognizing a User’s Speech Pattern Now that you have a good foundational understanding of the Speaker Recognition API, it's time to start using it. In this module, I'm going to walk you through how to set up code that will allow you to access each of the two aspects of the Speaker Recognition API.
Speech to Text and Back Again Speech to text is a useful tool to have in your arsenal when creating voice-enabled applications. So in this module, I'm going to be doing a deep dive into how to utilize the Bing Speech to Text and Text to Speech APIs.
