Account email address. Required when using a .pem or .p12 keyFilename.

keyFilename

Optional

string

Full path to the a .json, .pem, or .p12 key downloaded from the Google Developers Console. If you provide a path to a JSON file, the projectId option below is not necessary. NOTE: .pem and .p12 require you to specify options.email as well.

The port on which to connect to the remote host.

projectId

Optional

string

The project ID from the Google Developer's Console, e.g. 'grape-spaceship-123'. We will also check the environment variable GCLOUD_PROJECT for your project ID. If your app is running in an environment which supports Application Default Credentials, your project ID will be detected automatically.

promise

function()

Custom promise module to use instead of native Promises.

servicePath

Optional

string

The domain name of the API remote host.

Properties

static

The port for this API service.

The scopes needed to make gRPC calls for every method defined in this service.

servicePath

static

The DNS address for this API service.

Methods

getProjectId

getProjectId(callback)

Return the project ID used by this class.

Parameter

callback

function(Error, string)

the callback to be called with the current project Id.

longRunningRecognize

longRunningRecognize(request, options, callback) returns Promise

Performs asynchronous speech recognition: receive results via the google.longrunning.Operations interface. Returns either an Operation.error or an Operation.response which contains a LongRunningRecognizeResponse message.

Parameter

request

Object

The request object that will be sent.

Values in request have the following properties:

Parameter

config

Object

Required Provides information to the recognizer that specifies how to process the request.

This object should have the same structure as RecognitionConfig

audio

Object

Required The audio data to be recognized.

This object should have the same structure as RecognitionAudio

options

Optional

Object

Optional parameters. You can override the default settings for this call, e.g, timeout, retries, paginations, etc. See gax.CallOptions for the details.

callback

Optional

function(nullable Error, nullable Object)

The function which will be called with the result of the API call.

The second parameter to the callback is a gax.Operation object.

Returns

Promise 

  • The promise which resolves to an array. The first element of the array is a gax.Operation object. The promise has a method named "cancel" which cancels the ongoing API call.

Example

const speech = require('@google-cloud/speech');

var client = new speech.v1.SpeechClient({
  // optional auth parameters.
});

var encoding = 'FLAC';
var sampleRateHertz = 44100;
var languageCode = 'en-US';
var config = {
  encoding: encoding,
  sampleRateHertz: sampleRateHertz,
  languageCode: languageCode,
};
var uri = 'gs://bucket_name/file_name.flac';
var audio = {
  uri: uri,
};
var request = {
  config: config,
  audio: audio,
};

// Handle the operation using the promise pattern.
client.longRunningRecognize(request)
  .then(responses => {
    var operation = responses[0];
    var initialApiResponse = responses[1];

    // Operation#promise starts polling for the completion of the LRO.
    return operation.promise();
  })
  .then(responses => {
    // The final result of the operation.
    var result = responses[0];

    // The metadata value of the completed operation.
    var metadata = responses[1];

    // The response of the api call returning the complete operation.
    var finalApiResponse = responses[2];
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);
  });

var encoding = 'FLAC';
var sampleRateHertz = 44100;
var languageCode = 'en-US';
var config = {
  encoding: encoding,
  sampleRateHertz: sampleRateHertz,
  languageCode: languageCode,
};
var uri = 'gs://bucket_name/file_name.flac';
var audio = {
  uri: uri,
};
var request = {
  config: config,
  audio: audio,
};

// Handle the operation using the event emitter pattern.
client.longRunningRecognize(request)
  .then(responses => {
    var operation = responses[0];
    var initialApiResponse = responses[1];

    // Adding a listener for the "complete" event starts polling for the
    // completion of the operation.
    operation.on('complete', (result, metadata, finalApiResponse) => {
      // doSomethingWith(result);
    });

    // Adding a listener for the "progress" event causes the callback to be
    // called on any change in metadata when the operation is polled.
    operation.on('progress', (metadata, apiResponse) => {
      // doSomethingWith(metadata)
    });

    // Adding a listener for the "error" event handles any errors found during polling.
    operation.on('error', err => {
      // throw(err);
    });
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);
  });

recognize

recognize(request, options, callback) returns Promise

Performs synchronous speech recognition: receive results after all audio has been sent and processed.

Parameter

request

Object

The request object that will be sent.

Values in request have the following properties:

Parameter

config

Object

Required Provides information to the recognizer that specifies how to process the request.

This object should have the same structure as RecognitionConfig

audio

Object

Required The audio data to be recognized.

This object should have the same structure as RecognitionAudio

callback

Optional

function(nullable Error, nullable Object)

The second parameter to the callback is an object representing RecognizeResponse.

Returns

Promise 

  • The promise which resolves to an array. The first element of the array is an object representing RecognizeResponse. The promise has a method named "cancel" which cancels the ongoing API call.

Example

const speech = require('@google-cloud/speech');

var client = new speech.v1.SpeechClient({
  // optional auth parameters.
});

var encoding = 'FLAC';
var sampleRateHertz = 44100;
var languageCode = 'en-US';
var config = {
  encoding: encoding,
  sampleRateHertz: sampleRateHertz,
  languageCode: languageCode,
};
var uri = 'gs://bucket_name/file_name.flac';
var audio = {
  uri: uri,
};
var request = {

client.recognize(request)
  .then(responses => {

  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);

streamingRecognize

streamingRecognize(options) returns Stream

Performs bidirectional streaming speech recognition: receive results while sending audio. This method is only available via the gRPC API (not REST).

Parameter

options

Optional

Object

Optional parameters. You can override the default settings for this call, e.g, timeout, retries, paginations, etc. See gax.CallOptions for the details.

Returns

Stream 

An object stream which is both readable and writable. It accepts objects representing StreamingRecognizeRequest for write() method, and will emit objects representing StreamingRecognizeResponse on 'data' event asynchronously.

Example

const speech = require('@google-cloud/speech');

var client = new speech.v1.SpeechClient({
  // optional auth parameters.
});

var stream = client.streamingRecognize().on('data', response => {
  // doThingsWith(response)
});
var request = {};
// Write request objects.
stream.write(request);

streamingRecognize

streamingRecognize(config, options) returns stream

Performs bidirectional streaming speech recognition: receive results while sending audio. This method is only available via the gRPC API (not REST).

Parameter

config

object

The configuration for the stream. This is appropriately wrapped and sent as the first argument. It should be an object conforming to the StreamingRecognitionConfig structure.

options

Optional

object

Optional parameters. You can override the default settings for this call, e.g, timeout, retries, paginations, etc. See gax.CallOptions for the details.

Returns

stream 

An object stream which is both readable and writable. It accepts raw audio for the write() method, and will emit objects representing StreamingRecognizeResponse on the 'data' event asynchronously.

Example

const speech = require('@google-cloud/speech');
const client = new speech.SpeechClient();

const stream = client.streamingRecognize({
  config: {
    encoding: 'LINEAR16',
    languageCode: 'en-us',
    sampleRateHertz: 44100,
  },
}).on('data', function(response) {
  // doThingsWith(response);
});
const request = {};
// Write request objects.
stream.write(request);
