list-speech-synthesis-tasks

Description

Returns a list of SpeechSynthesisTask objects ordered by their creation date. This operation can filter the tasks by their status, for example, allowing users to list only tasks that are completed.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

list-speech-synthesis-tasks is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: SynthesisTasks

Synopsis

  list-speech-synthesis-tasks
[--status <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--status (string)

Status of the speech synthesis tasks returned in a List operation

Possible values:

  • scheduled
  • inProgress
  • completed
  • failed

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

NextToken -> (string)

An opaque pagination token returned from the previous List operation in this request. If present, this indicates where to continue the listing.

SynthesisTasks -> (list)

List of SynthesisTask objects that provides information from the specified task in the list request, including output format, creation time, task status, and so on.

(structure)

SynthesisTask object that provides information about a speech synthesis task.

Engine -> (string)

Specifies the engine (standard or neural ) for Amazon Polly to use when processing input text for speech synthesis. Using a voice that is not supported for the engine selected will result in an error.

TaskId -> (string)

The Amazon Polly generated identifier for a speech synthesis task.

TaskStatus -> (string)

Current status of the individual speech synthesis task.

TaskStatusReason -> (string)

Reason for the current status of a specific speech synthesis task, including errors if the task has failed.

OutputUri -> (string)

Pathway for the output speech file.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

Timestamp for the time the synthesis task was started.

RequestCharacters -> (integer)

Number of billable characters synthesized.

SnsTopicArn -> (string)

ARN for the SNS topic optionally used for providing status notification for a speech synthesis task.

LexiconNames -> (list)

List of one or more pronunciation lexicon names you want the service to apply during synthesis. Lexicons are applied only if the language of the lexicon is the same as the language of the voice.

(string)

OutputFormat -> (string)

The format in which the returned output will be encoded. For audio stream, this will be mp3, ogg_vorbis, or pcm. For speech marks, this will be json.

SampleRate -> (string)

The audio frequency specified in Hz.

The valid values for mp3 and ogg_vorbis are "8000", "16000", "22050", and "24000". The default value for standard voices is "22050". The default value for neural voices is "24000".

Valid values for pcm are "8000" and "16000" The default value is "16000".

SpeechMarkTypes -> (list)

The type of speech marks returned for the input text.

(string)

TextType -> (string)

Specifies whether the input text is plain text or SSML. The default value is plain text.

VoiceId -> (string)

Voice ID to use for the synthesis.

LanguageCode -> (string)

Optional language code for a synthesis task. This is only necessary if using a bilingual voice, such as Aditi, which can be used for either Indian English (en-IN) or Hindi (hi-IN).

If a bilingual voice is used and no language code is specified, Amazon Polly will use the default language of the bilingual voice. The default language for any voice is the one returned by the DescribeVoices operation for the LanguageCode parameter. For example, if no language code is specified, Aditi will use Indian English rather than Hindi.
