Cloud Speech: Node.js Client

release level npm version codecov

Cloud Speech Client Library for Node.js

Read more about the client libraries for Cloud APIs, including the older Google APIs Client Libraries, in Client Libraries Explained.

Table of contents:

Quickstart

Before you begin

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable the Cloud Speech API.
  3. Set up authentication with a service account so you can access the API from your local workstation.

Installing the client library

npm install @google-cloud/speech

Using the client library

async function main() {
  // Imports the Google Cloud client library
  const speech = require('@google-cloud/speech');
  const fs = require('fs');

  // Creates a client
  const client = new speech.SpeechClient();

  // The name of the audio file to transcribe
  const fileName = './resources/audio.raw';

  // Reads a local audio file and converts it to base64
  const file = fs.readFileSync(fileName);
  const audioBytes = file.toString('base64');

  // The audio file's encoding, sample rate in hertz, and BCP-47 language code
  const audio = {
    content: audioBytes,
  };
  const config = {
    encoding: 'LINEAR16',
    sampleRateHertz: 16000,
    languageCode: 'en-US',
  };
  const request = {
    audio: audio,
    config: config,
  };

  // Detects speech in the audio file
  const [response] = await client.recognize(request);
  const transcription = response.results
    .map(result => result.alternatives[0].transcript)
    .join('\n');
  console.log(`Transcription: ${transcription}`);
}
main().catch(console.error);

Versioning

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA). This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
