Create a Speech Cognitive Services resource using the Azure Portal
Use the Speech resource via SDK in a Visual Studio Project
Integrate the service into application projects
By the end of this project, you will have successfully created an Azure account, logged into the Azure Portal, created a Speech Cognitive Services resource and use it in a C# console application by executing API calls to generate predictions. You will learn to execute API calls to the pre-built Computer Vision resource through a series of tasks which include creating the appropriate resource to realize the API calls and then building a simple C# console application with Visual Studio Community that will execute speech-to-text in different languages. The skills learned in this guided project will provide the foundation to understanding and implementing Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning solutions in Microsoft Azure.
