This release provides new improved language packs for all Speechmatics' commercially available languages. Two new language packs
Cantonese (yue) and
Indonesian (id) are released. This release improves on existing punctuation in several of these languages, as well as existing custom dictionary features. Common concepts in 11 words called entities are now output in a consistent and predictable fashion. Additional data about these entities can be requested via the API. Transcript segments can flex in length when an entity is detected to ensure accurate output, but fixed behaviour can also now be requested using a new API parameter.
It is now necessary to use processors that support Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) when running the container in order to take advantage of latest performance optimisations.
It is also recommended when using the enhanced model to use hardware that supports the AVX512_VNNI flag for optimal processing performance. For more information please see the quick start guide.
