If i am using push stream for transcribing. when i am not sending data to push stream (while keeping the session open), do i get charged by minutes still, or the cost is related to the length of actual received audio data?

    Azure Speech Services, including the Speech-to-Text service, typically charge based on the duration of audio processed by the service, rather than the duration of an open connection or session. This means that if you're using a push stream for transcribing but not sending any audio data to it, you should not be incurring charges for that idle time.
