I would like to ask if the audio files generated by Microsoft azure text-to-speech, such as the pronunciation audio files of some words, will infringe the rights of Microsoft if I want to use them for commercial purposes?

I want to use azure text-to-speech to generate audio files of English word pronunciation and upload them to online English websites for reference.

    @良 张 Yes, you can use audio files generated by Azure text to speech for commercial use provided you are using a valid paid subscription for your azure account. The text passed to your speech resource API and the corresponding response or audio files can be used in your applications based on your business need. All privacy and compliance standards are based on Azure cognitive services compliance offerings. I hope this answers your question. Thanks.
