How to set up Microsoft Azure Active Directory Single Sign-On

With Microsoft Azure Active Directory Single Sign-On, users are able to sign in to SpeechLive using the Microsoft account credentials of their company, e.g. the one they use to sign in to Windows, or Office 365. It requires the IT administrator of an organization to activate the required settings first.

To configure Single Sign-On in Microsoft Azure Active Directory:

  1. Go to and choose Azure Active Directory in the list of available services.

  2. Choose Enterprise applications on the left of the screen.

  3. On top of the screen click on New application and search for "Philips SpeechLive".

  4. Click on Philips SpeechLive and click Sign up for SpeechLive in the new window.

  5. A new window opens and you will see the SpeechLive sign in screen, click on Sign in with Microsoft.

  6. Sign in with the Microsoft Azure Active directory admin account of your company, or any account that has permissions to add new enterprise applications to Microsoft Azure Active directory.

  7. On the permission screen, activate Consent on behalf of your organization and click Accept.
