This page contains a number of guides related to using the Scribe API. To get started, use the Authentication Quickstart guide to generate API keys. Then, use these keys in the Batch API Quickstart guide to transcribe an audio or video file.

For users that want to stream audio in real time using websockets, we provide the Real Time Streaming Guide.

The Authentication Quickstart page allows users to generate and user access tokens associated with their own accounts. For deploying production services, it may be preferable to generate a separate key for that service. To do this, check our Public/Private Key Authentication guide.
