Potential Use Cases
  • In order to improve accessibility and potentially boost SEO, you want a transcription of your podcast's audio file to be available for your end-users. Submitting your audio file to Amazon Transcribe accomplishes this task and saves on the need for manual transcription.

  • You want to make sure your catalog of archive videos is truly indexable in your CMS search. By submitting your video file to Amazon Transcribe, you'll be able to search against the transcriptions of the video to zero in on topical information in the video rather than just the short video description.
