Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) is all about using computers to transform the spoken word into a written one. ASR is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in which a computer recognizes spoken words and transforms them into text. The process is also commonly referred to as "speech-to-text"" or "transcription services." The process can be applied to live speech or audio recordings. In short, ASR is the technology that makes it possible to dictate texts into your application for voice inputs.

Text-to-Speech (TTS) is ideal for any application that plays audio of human speech to users. It allows you to convert arbitrary strings, words, and sentences into the sound of a person speaking the same things. Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology leverages neural network techniques to deliver a human-like, engaging, and personalized user experience.
