Accessing Images



The Speechmatics Docker images are obtained from the Speechmatics Docker Repository. If you do not have a Speechmatics Docker Repository account or have lost your details, please reach out to Support.

The latest information about the Containers can be found in the knowledgebase section of the Support Portal. If a support account is not available or the Containers section is not visible in the Support Portal, please reach out to Support for help.

Prior to pulling any Docker images, the following must be known:

  • Speechmatics Docker credentials – provided by the Speechmatics team
  • Language Code – the ISO language code (for example fr for French)
  • LICENSE_TOKEN - The value of the signed claims token which is used to validate the license file. This is required to run the Container. Speechmatics Support will provide this within the license file generated for each customer
  • TAG – which is used to identify the image version

Software Repository Login

Ensure the Speechmatics Docker URL and Software Repository username and password are available. The endpoint being used will require Docker to be installed. For example:

docker login

You will be prompted for username and password. If successful, you will see the response:

Login Succeeded

If unsuccessful, please verify your credentials and URL. If problems persist, please contact Speechmatics Support.


Speechmatics require all customers to cache a copy of the Docker image(s) within their own environment. Please do not pull directly from the Speechmatics Software Repository for each deployment.

Pulling Core Speech CPU Images

Each supported language pack comes as a different Docker image, so the process will need to be repeated for each language pack required using the relevant language code.

# pulling Batch Global English (en) with the 10.6.0 tag:
docker pull

# pulling the Batch Spanish (es) model with the 10.6.0 tag:
docker pull

# pulling Real-Time Global English (en) with the 10.6.0 tag:
docker pull

As of Feb 2021, all Speechmatics Containers are built using Docker Buildkit. This should not impact your internal management of the Speechmatics Container. If you use JFrog to host the Speechmatics container there may be some UI issues see here, but these are cosmetic and should not impact your ability to pull and run the Container. If your internal registry uses Nexus and self-signed certificates, please make sure you are on Nexus version 3.15 or above or you may encounter errors.
