Language Support

The Cloud Speech-to-Text uses a speech recognition engine that can understand one of a wide variety of languages. These languages are specified within a recognition request's languageCode parameter. Each language code parameter consists of a BCP-47 identifier. These tags are typically of the form language-region, where language refers to the primary language and region refers to the region (usually a country identifier) of the particular dialect. For example, English may either be represented by American English (en-US), or British English (en-GB).

The Speech-to-Text can recognize speech in the following languages.
