UpdateVocabulary - Transcribe

UpdateVocabulary

Updates an existing custom vocabulary with new values. This operation overwrites all existing information with your new values; you cannot append new terms onto an existing custom vocabulary.

Request Syntax

{ "LanguageCode": "string", "Phrases": [ "string" ], "VocabularyFileUri": "string", "VocabularyName": "string" }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

LanguageCode

The language code that represents the language of the entries in the custom vocabulary you want to update. Each custom vocabulary must contain terms in only one language.

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

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

Type: String

Valid Values: af-ZA | ar-AE | ar-SA | cy-GB | da-DK | de-CH | de-DE | en-AB | en-AU | en-GB | en-IE | en-IN | en-US | en-WL | es-ES | es-US | fa-IR | fr-CA | fr-FR | ga-IE | gd-GB | he-IL | hi-IN | id-ID | it-IT | ja-JP | ko-KR | ms-MY | nl-NL | pt-BR | pt-PT | ru-RU | ta-IN | te-IN | tr-TR | zh-CN | zh-TW | th-TH | en-ZA | en-NZ

Required: Yes

Phrases

Use this parameter if you want to update your custom vocabulary by including all desired terms, as comma-separated values, within your request. The other option for updating your custom vocabulary 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 VocabularyFileUri parameter.

Note that if you include Phrases in your request, you cannot use VocabularyFileUri; 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 custom vocabulary filter request fails. Refer to Character Sets for Custom Vocabularies to get the character set for your language.
