Music detection

Background music can have a significantly negative impact on transcription accuracy. Enabling music detection can help eliminate this issue by excluding music and other high energy non-speech events from transcription results.

When music detection is enabled, all utterances will be passed through an algorithm to be classified as music or non-music. Utterances classified as non-music will be handled as normal. Utterances classified as music are assumed to contain noisy audio and will not be transcribed.

Important: Utterances classified as music will not be processed by any optional transcription features such as LID, GID, EID, and diarization. Optional transcription features ignore any utterance classified as music.

Refer to Music for more information on this feature.
