Our real-time service now supports binary mode for sending audio segments. Users no longer need to encode audio segments as base64 sequences inside of JSON objects - the raw binary audio segment can now be directly sent to our API.
Moving forward, sending audio segments through websockets via the
audio_data field is considered a deprecated functionality, although it remains the default for now to avoid breaking changes. We plan to support the
audio_data field until 2025.
If you are using our SDKs, no changes are required on your end.
We have fixed a bug that would yield a degradation to timestamp accuracy at the end of very long files with many disfluencies.
