create-vocabulary-filter

Description

Creates a new custom vocabulary filter.

You can use vocabulary filters to mask, delete, or flag specific words from your transcript. Vocabulary filters are commonly used to mask profanity in transcripts.

Each language has a character set that contains all allowed characters for that specific language. If you use unsupported characters, your vocabulary filter request fails. Refer to Character Sets for Custom Vocabularies to get the character set for your language.

For more information, see Using vocabulary filtering with unwanted words .

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  create-vocabulary-filter
--vocabulary-filter-name <value>
--language-code <value>
[--words <value>]
[--vocabulary-filter-file-uri <value>]
[--tags <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]

Options

--vocabulary-filter-name (string)

A unique name, chosen by you, for your new custom vocabulary filter.

This name is case sensitive, cannot contain spaces, and must be unique within an Amazon Web Services account. If you try to create a new vocabulary filter with the same name as an existing vocabulary filter, you get a ConflictException error.

--language-code (string)

The language code that represents the language of the entries in your vocabulary filter. Each vocabulary filter must contain terms in only one language.

A vocabulary filter can only be used to transcribe files in the same language as the filter. For example, if you create a vocabulary filter using US English (en-US ), you can only apply this filter to files that contain English audio.

For a list of supported languages and their associated language codes, refer to the Supported languages table.

Possible values:

--words (list)

Use this parameter if you want to create your vocabulary filter by including all desired terms, as comma-separated values, within your request. The other option for creating your vocabulary filter is to save your entries in a text file and upload them to an Amazon S3 bucket, then specify the location of your file using the VocabularyFilterFileUri parameter.

Note that if you include Words in your request, you cannot use VocabularyFilterFileUri ; you must choose one or the other.

Each language has a character set that contains all allowed characters for that specific language. If you use unsupported characters, your vocabulary filter request fails. Refer to Character Sets for Custom Vocabularies to get the character set for your language.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--vocabulary-filter-file-uri (string)

The Amazon S3 location of the text file that contains your custom vocabulary filter terms. The URI must be located in the same Amazon Web Services Region as the resource you're calling.

Here's an example URI path: s3://DOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET/my-vocab-filter-file.txt

Note that if you include VocabularyFilterFileUri in your request, you cannot use Words ; you must choose one or the other.

--tags (list)

Adds one or more custom tags, each in the form of a key:value pair, to a new custom vocabulary filter at the time you create this new filter.

To learn more about using tags with Amazon Transcribe, refer to Tagging resources .

(structure)

Adds metadata, in the form of a key:value pair, to the specified resource.

For example, you could add the tag Department:Sales to a resource to indicate that it pertains to your organization's sales department. You can also use tags for tag-based access control.

To learn more about tagging, see Tagging resources .

Key -> (string)

The first part of a key:value pair that forms a tag associated with a given resource. For example, in the tag Department:Sales , the key is 'Department'.

Value -> (string)

The second part of a key:value pair that forms a tag associated with a given resource. For example, in the tag Department:Sales , the value is 'Sales'.

Note that you can set the value of a tag to an empty string, but you can't set the value of a tag to null. Omitting the tag value is the same as using an empty string.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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.

--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.

Examples

To create a vocabulary filter

The following create-vocabulary-filter example creates a vocabulary filter that uses a text file that contains a list of words that you wouldn't want to appear in a transcription. For language-code, specify the language code corresponding to the language of your vocabulary filter. For vocabulary-filter-file-uri, specify the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) URI of the text file. For vocabulary-filter-name, specify the name of your vocabulary filter.

aws transcribe create-vocabulary-filter \
    --language-code language-code \
    --vocabulary-filter-file-uri s3://DOC-EXAMPLE-BUCKET/vocabulary-filter.txt \
    --vocabulary-filter-name cli-vocabulary-filter-example

Output:

{
    "VocabularyFilterName": "cli-vocabulary-filter-example",
    "LanguageCode": "language-code"
}

For more information, see Filtering Unwanted Words in the Amazon Transcribe Developer Guide.

Output

VocabularyFilterName -> (string)

The name you chose for your custom vocabulary filter.

LanguageCode -> (string)

The language code you selected for your vocabulary filter.

LastModifiedTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time you created your vocabulary filter.

Timestamps are in the format YYYY-MM-DD'T'HH:MM:SS.SSSSSS-UTC . For example, 2022-05-04T12:32:58.761000-07:00 represents 12:32 PM UTC-7 on May 4, 2022.
