In a business relation. Assuming the subscription and contractual relation with Microsoft has ended. Can Azure TTS generated output files e.g. WAF files be used without any termination, no limit regardless the terminated relation to Microsoft Azure Speech services.

Example: We created several WAV files based on Azure TTS services. These WAV files are used and will be used in the future but what happens if we terminate all the Microsoft Azure Services. Is it still legal to use these wav files without any Microsoft account?

    Hello @David-Leonhard Steinbauer

    Thanks for reaching out to us, this is legal if -

    1. when you generate the audio, you have a paid and valid subscription.
    2. following code of conduct defines the requirements that all Azure AI Speech text to speech - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/cognitive-services/speech-service/custom-neural-voice/code-of-conduct

    I hope this helps.
