CHATBOT MEETUP CHATBOT MEETUP CHATBOT MEETUP CHATBOT CHATBOT MEETUP CHATBOT MEETUP CHATBOT MEETUP CHATBOT MEETUP

On June 28th, 2017 we're organizing our next Chatbot Meetup in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Feel free to join!'

How affordable is voice-to-speech?
 
 

What are the recommended options for turning a text based chat bot into one that uses voice input? For example, it looks like Google will sell voice-to-text conversion as a service for ~$1.44 per hour, per user (ouch!). I didn’t look into the programming API.

I would be glad to hear about alternatives.

Oops! I meant voice-to-text (plants face in palm)

This has links to a variety of speech to text packages and implements it in python.

Thanks. IBM is at $0.02 per minute, so I must have misread the Google pricing.
