About Data Handling

Learn how Speech handles your data.

Does Oracle use the audio files that I upload into Speech service for other purposes?

No, Oracle doesn't use the audio files you upload for any purpose except to provide you with a transcription of your audio files.

Does Oracle use my audio files to train the service?
No, Oracle doesn't use the audio files you upload to train the Speech service.
Are the files I send to the Speech API, the results, or other information about the request itself stored on Oracle servers?

The audio file you send to the Speech API is processed in memory and isn't stored in the service. The resulting transcription file is provided to you and isn't stored in the service. Oracle temporarily logs some metadata about your API requests to improve the service, for billing and metering purposes, and to combat abuse. A metadata example is the time and size of the request.
