This is a patch release fixing two minor issues.

The detailed list of changes introduced in this release follows.
New Features
  • None.
Fixed Problems
  • Do not set the header field Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key in the outgoing request when the subscription key is not specified (on-prem containers). This is a regression introduced since Azure SS 1.15.0 with the support of private endpoints causing no functional differences in most of the cases.
  • Fixed generation of the <mstts:background> element which should be put in front of all <voice> elements and must be the first child of the <speak> element.
Configuration Parameters
  • None.
  • None.
