MedicalTranscriptionSetting - Amazon Transcribe

MedicalTranscriptionSetting

Allows additional optional settings in your StartMedicalTranscriptionJob request, including channel identification, alternative transcriptions, and speaker partitioning. You can use that to apply custom vocabularies to your medical transcription job.

Contents

ChannelIdentification

Enables channel identification in multi-channel audio.

Channel identification transcribes the audio on each channel independently, then appends the output for each channel into one transcript.

If you have multi-channel audio and do not enable channel identification, your audio is transcribed in a continuous manner and your transcript does not separate the speech by channel.

For more information, see Transcribing multi-channel audio.

MaxAlternatives

Indicate the maximum number of alternative transcriptions you want Amazon Transcribe Medical to include in your transcript.

If you select a number greater than the number of alternative transcriptions generated by Amazon Transcribe Medical, only the actual number of alternative transcriptions are included.

If you include MaxAlternatives in your request, you must also include ShowAlternatives with a value of true.

For more information, see Alternative transcriptions.
