I'm trying to the transcription from an audio.

I downloaded the Speech To Text Oxford Project and put the audio file in the same folder where the two audio files that came with the project, with the features:Format: WAV PCM Encoder

  • Sample Rate: 8000;
  • Mode: Mono;
  • Bit per sample: 16 bit integer;
  • 50 Seconds long.

When execulto the application, the following error occurs:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in mscorlib.dll

Additional information: Could not find file 'C:\Users\ASR\Microsoft\Project Oxford\ms speech\samples\SpeechRecognitionServiceExample\objd\amd64\audio.wav'.

What remains to be done to transcribe the audio file?

I'm not sure exactly which sample you're running, but if you are using Visual Studio, you'll want to select the properties for your audio file (audio.wav) in the Solution Explorer, make sure that the Build Action is "Content" and Copy to Output Directory is either "Copy always" or "Copy if newer".
