Azure Cognitive Speech TTS : Is the free tier included in standard

Dupont-Viel, Jean-François 0 Reputation points

I would like to get a clarification about Azure Cognitive Speech TTS cost calculation.

There is different for >Tier TTS usage : Free, Pay as you Go, Commitment.

I would like to know if you are using the Commitment - standard tier, do you get the free tier part included ( 500k character per month ). It is not clear.

I know that Google and amazon are offereing it.

    Hello @Dupont-Viel, Jean-François !

    Welcome to Microsoft QnA!

    There is not a document saying that

    When you select the Standard Tier you pay for that Tier based on pricing

    Have a look also on Azure Pricing Calculator

    |Text to Speech(per character billing)|Neural|Real-time & batch syntheis: $16 per 1M
    Long audio creation: $100 per 1M characters| | -------- | -------- | -------- | ||

    I hope this helps!
