Amazon Transcribe now Supports Vocabulary Filtering

Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add speech-to-text capability to your applications. Starting today, when transcribing audio, you can instruct Amazon Transcribe to automatically mask or remove specific terms from the output transcripts based on a vocabulary that you specify. For example, you can use a vocabulary filter to automatically remove profane words from the transcription results for content moderation. You do not need to scrub inappropriate content from each transcript anymore. You can create a vocabulary filter once and apply it to all your transcription jobs. You can also create multiple vocabulary filters and choose which one should be used for a particular transcription job.
