Transcribe Web3 lingo using Custom Vocabularies within AWS

Improve your AWS transcriptions using Custom Vocabularies.

I was transcribing a few audio recordings that contained a bunch of Web3 jargon, and I needed a better way to capture words like ERC20, ERC1155, ETH, etc. What worked for me was using AWS Translate with Custom Vocabularies.

Visit AWS and Create a Custom Vocabulary. Amazon has a nice video tutorial that I suggest watching. The video alongside my examples below should be enough to get you started.

Web3 Custom Vocabulary Examples

The two examples below demonstrate a Custom Vocabulary using a table. Although it's elegant that you can create a library using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) or a Phrase, it's a bummer that you have to pick one standard. You cannot have a single document with both the IPA and Phrases, nor can you use two custom library docs during a translation job. So, in other words, only pick one approach.
