new version=2021-05-19.0

previous version=2021-03-17.0

We have done additional training to our main General Model for US English to improve accuracy and expand the model vocabulary.  We’ve also incorporated our latest improvements to punctuation (punctuate=true).

The general model is Deepgram’s default model selection, but can also be called by passing model=general as an API parameter in your request. If you do not wish to use the latest version, be sure to specify the desired version as version={desired_version}.

Previous versions include:

  • 2021-03-17.0
  • 2021-02-10.0
  • 2020-11-24.0


Learn about opting in to General Releases. To get early access to updated base models, use model={desired_model}&version=beta.
