Convert Audio Input to Text in Swift

The capability of machine learning algorithms has advanced at a rapid pace over the past couple decades, providing us with an array of tools to improve our workflows. The API solution that we will be discussing in this tutorial is one such tool that can be leveraged to simplify a task, and in this case, that task is transcribing audio to text.

All we will need for this process is the audio file, which can be MP3 or WAV, and our API key to call the speech recognition function with the following code:

import Foundation
#if canImport(FoundationNetworking)
import FoundationNetworking

This will allow you to optimize the accessibility of your applications and websites by providing a text accompaniment to any audio files. If you need to retrieve an API key, you can do so by registering for a free account on the Cloudmersive website; this provides 800 monthly calls across our entire API library.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
