Obtaining transcription results

Using a callback to automatically return results from V‑Cloud is the recommended way of using V‑Cloud, since it provides the shortest turnaround time between issuing a /transcribe request and receiving the results. Results return as soon as transcription completes and no subsequent request is required to retrieve the results. The callback mechanism is the most efficient way to use V‑Cloud.

By default, the results produced by V‑Cloud differ based on whether you submitted a single audio file or a zip file containing one or more audio files.

  • If you submit a non-zipped audio file, the result is a JSON transcript of that audio file (unless you specified other options).

  • If you submit one or more audio files contained in a zip file, the result is a zip file that contains the transcript(s) of the audio files in the zip archive (unless you specified other options).

Tip: Uploading and downloading zip files is recommended to minimize network bandwidth consumption.

A requestid is returned in response to any transcription request for tracking or retrieval (if no callback is specified or the callback fails).
