Speech-to-text (STT)

A speech-to-text (STT) entity allows other integrations or applications to stream speech data to the STT API and get text back.

Building block integration

This speech-to-text (stt) is a building block integration that cannot be added to your Home Assistant directly but is used and provided by other integrations.

A building block integration differs from the typical integration that connects to a device or service. Instead, other integrations that do integrate a device or service into Home Assistant use this speech-to-text (stt) building block to provide entities, services, and other functionality that you can use in your automations or dashboards.

If one of your integrations features this building block, this page documents the functionality the speech-to-text (stt) building block offers.

The state of a speech-to-text entity

Every speech-to-text entity keeps track of the timestamp of when the last time the speech-to-text entity was used to process speech.
