Provisioning your Cognitive Speech Services

Before we start making use of these services, we need to provision them first! This is a relatively quick process:

  1. In your Azure Portal, navigate to the Resource Group that will be housing your cognitive services API deployment

  2. Select the Create button

  3. Set the deployment options

    Be mindful of the pricing tier. The free SKU does not currently support batch transcriptions. While the standard S0 tier will cost you some money, the rate for speech transcription is currently about $0.0003 per second, or $0.016 per minute, which should be pretty negligible for our usage

  4. Proceed directly to the Review + Create screen and provision the resource
