Speechmatics’ Free Trial is a headless application with no user interface available. It is a publicly available, managed service which offers all the same feature and language functionality as Speechmatics’ full product offering. We will provide the necessary documentation to make your API integration into your workflow as seamless as possible. If you require a user interface, we recommend speaking with one of our partners.


What you will need to get started:

  • Working technical knowledge of APIs

  • Video or audio file(s) to transcribe

  • A command-line utility (such as Curl) to make API calls

  • An API key, given out by Speechmatics upon request


Command-line CURL utility
