Language Identification

Language Identification (LID) is a software component that performs spoken language identification. Given an interval of audio, LID outputs the identity of the single language spoken (for example “Spanish” or “English”) in that audio. In cases when a submitted interval contains speech in more than one language, LID identifies the language spoken for the largest proportion of that interval.

If licensed, the LID feature is enabled per transcription request with stream tag lid=true.
