We measure in milliseconds, not seconds.

With our End-to-End Deep Learning Neural Network, pre-recorded and real-time streaming speed are built into our platform. That means you never have to sacrifice accuracy or cost to get faster transcripts. Get the speed you need to create real, human-like voice experiences.

Beyond out-of-the-box accuracy.

With Deepgram, general speech model accuracy is not the end but the beginning. If your audio contains unique branded terms, industry jargon, accents, dialects, etc., a one-size-fits-all speech model won’t give you the accuracy you need. Our tailored speech models give you even higher accuracy on the words that matter to you. Oh, and we can put it in production in weeks—not months.

Choose your level of control.

Deepgram gives you a choice with our AI Speech Platform deployment. If you are dealing with sensitive or private audio data, we offer an on-premises or virtual private cloud option in addition to our standard public cloud option. Great ASR should be available everywhere, not just in the cloud.

No rounding up. No surprises.

Rounding up fees to the nearest 15 seconds is a common practice in speech recognition – but not at Deepgram. We think you should only pay for what you actually use. With our Fair Billing, you can reliably predict your transcription expenses and not find yourself getting hit with a bill that’s 3x more than you expected.

We chose Deepgram because it just feels friendlier than Google STT or Amazon Transcribe, and that is largely because it is so fast and accurate, you can speak normally in conversation and the transcripts or captions are immediately usable, even with longer or more complicated language.
