Learn how to transcribe speech to text using Picovoice Leopard Speech-to-Text Python SDK. Leopard performs speech recognition locally, keeping your voice data private (i.e. GDPR and HIPAA compliant by design). The SDK runs on Linux, macOS, Windows, Raspberry Pi, and NVIDIA Jetson.

Leopard can also run on Android, iOS, and even inside a Web Browser!

Speech-to-text (STT), automatic speech recognition (ASR), automatic transcription, and large-vocabulary speech recognition (LVSR) are the same.
