Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Help with audio file slicing

Currently I can submit a word or phrase with an audio file and receive back the time code of the word or phrase. We need the time codes of the periods, question marks, and exclamation marks. In other words, we want to upload a transcript with the audio file and get back the time codes that will enable us to cut the audio file into sentences. This shouldn’t be difficult to implement if a transcript is uploaded with the audio file. Without a transcript I imagine that it’d be difficult.

    After further discussion, there is already work being done on punctuations which might partially address this.

    The current speech service only track timings for actual pronounced words, not punctuation marks.

    The audio transcript comparison can be done at the post-processing level, after you received the STT transcript

    We have no plan to support it.
