Amazon Transcribe now Supports Alternative Transcriptions

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. Up until now, Amazon Transcribe returned transcriptions with the highest confidence score only. Starting today, you can specify that Amazon Transcribe return additional transcriptions as well. You can use these alternative transcriptions to see different interpretations of the transcribed audio, giving you added optionality and flexibility to select the most suitable text results for your application. For example, in media asset management (MAM) applications that enable users to review and splice together subtitles, users can now select from up to ten alternative transcriptions. Alternative transcripts are available across all languages supported by Amazon Transcribe.
