Class

SFSpeechAudioBufferRecognitionRequest

A request to recognize speech from captured audio content, such as audio from the device's microphone.

Declaration

class SFSpeechAudioBufferRecognitionRequest : SFSpeechRecognitionRequest

Overview

Use an SFSpeechAudioBufferRecognitionRequest object to perform speech recognition on live audio, or on a set of existing audio buffers. For example, use this request object to route audio from a device's microphone to the speech recognizer.

The request object contains no audio initially. As you capture audio, call append(_:) or appendAudioSampleBuffer(_:) to add audio samples to the request object. The speech recognizer continuously analyzes the audio you appended, stopping only when you call the endAudio() method. (You must call endAudio() explicitly to stop the speech recognition process.)

For a complete example of how to use audio buffers with speech recognition, see SpeakToMe: Using Speech Recognition with AVAudioEngine.

Topics

func endAudio()

Marks the end of audio input for the recognition request.

Getting the Audio Format

var nativeAudioFormat: AVAudioFormat

The preferred audio format for optimal speech recognition.
