Output Options

The following parameters are used to refine the transcription output. Refer to output for more information on using the output parameter.

Table 1. Output Options





false (default), true

This option explicitly allows curl to perform "insecure" SSL connections and transfers. All SSL connections are attempted to be made secure by using the CA certificate bundle installed by default. This makes all connections considered "insecure" fail unless -k --insecure is used.

This option is only relevant when HTTPS URLs are provided for callback or utterance_callback.

Refer to http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html for more details on this parameter.


true (default), false, concat

Controls whether or not number words in transcribed text are converted into numeric digits and related conventional formats, including dollar amounts, wall-clock times, percentages, ordinals, and telephone numbers. For example, with numtrans set to true (the default), the words “forty two percent” would be transformed into the text “42%”.

Use the numtrans=concat option to ask the engine to perform more concatenation than usual.

Refer to numtrans for more information on this parameter.


true, false, zip, 7z

Specifies whether or not to place the transcript within a compressed container, and if so, the type of the container.

Refer to outzip for more information on this parameter.


true (default), false

Controls whether transcript text is punctuated or not. In most cases it is desirable to leave punctuation turned on, but there are special cases where it should be turned off. For example, if you are evaluating the Word Error Rate (WER) of Voci’s transcripts, punctuation must be disabled.

As of V‑Blaze version 7.1.0-1, setting punctuate=false will generate English output in lowercase.


Seconds (float)

Specifies the number of seconds of audio in the incoming audio file that will be transcribed. This option cannot be used with the transcode option.


Specifies a string to be appended at the truncation point when a jsontop or text transcript is truncated.


Specifies a decryption key to be used to access audio submitted within an encrypted archive.


Specifies an encryption key to be used to encrypt transcription results within the returned archive.
