I want to use my output sound from Microsoft TTs but I am in free tier for testing. Is that allowable and legal? Microsoft do not put this point in their privacy policy so I am confused. Clarification is needed here.

    Hello @jon schmidt

    Thanks for using Microsoft Q&A platform, you can use the audio files and text generated from TTS or STT for commercial use, but please ensure below:

    1.You are using a speech resource that is billed for your valid subscription. The billing will be based on the pricing as mentioned in the pricing page. If you are using a free account or credit, you can but you should consider upgrading to Pay as you go since free tier might not be a scalable solution.

    2.You can't use our AI output to recreate an AI model

    3.You must follow our code of conduct - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/cognitive-services/speech-service/tts-code-of-conduct

    I hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Yutong
