Use an LT service

LT services that run in the cloud and follow ELG’s specifications can be used via the ELG platform. You can do this via the try-out UI directly in the catalogue, via ELG’s API or the pythonSDK.

Try-out UI

The catalogue item of a service has a tab called Try out:

Here you can provide a sample input and see the results output by the service. Depending on the type of the service, you can type in or paste some text, or upload or record audio, and get the results rendered in a task-specific viewer.

Note

In the current release, only registered users can try out services.

Call a service via the API

The catalogue item of a service has a tab called Code samples:

You can copy and modify the provided example commands to call the service from your command line.
