Wav2vec 2.0 large-voxpopuli-sv-swedish

PLEASE NOTE that this model performs better and has a less restrictive license.

Additionally pretrained and finetuned version of Facebooks VoxPopuli-sv large model using Swedish radio broadcasts, NST and Common Voice data. Evalutation without a language model gives the following: WER for NST + Common Voice test set (2% of total sentences) is 3.95%. WER for Common Voice test set is 10.99% directly and 7.82% with a 4-gram language model.

When using this model, make sure that your speech input is sampled at 16kHz.

Training

This model has additionally pretrained on 1000h of Swedish local radio broadcasts, fine-tuned for 120000 updates on NST + CommonVoice and then for an additional 20000 updates on CommonVoice only. The additional fine-tuning on CommonVoice hurts performance on the NST+CommonVoice test set somewhat and, unsurprisingly, improves it on the CommonVoice test set. It seems to perform generally better though [citation needed].

Usage

The model can be used directly (without a language model) as follows:

import torch
import torchaudio
from datasets import load_dataset
from transformers import Wav2Vec2ForCTC, Wav2Vec2Processor
test_dataset = load_dataset("common_voice", "sv-SE", split="test[:2%]").
processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained("KBLab/wav2vec2-large-voxpopuli-sv-swedish")
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained("KBLab/wav2vec2-large-voxpopuli-sv-swedish")
resampler = torchaudio.transforms.Resample(48_000, 16_000)
# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the aduio files as arrays
def speech_file_to_array_fn(batch):
    speech_array, sampling_rate = torchaudio.load(batch["path"])
    batch["speech"] = resampler(speech_array).squeeze().numpy()
    return batch
test_dataset = test_dataset.map(speech_file_to_array_fn)
inputs = processor(test_dataset["speech"][:2], sampling_rate=16_000, return_tensors="pt", padding=True)
with torch.no_grad():
    logits = model(inputs.input_values, attention_mask=inputs.attention_mask).logits
predicted_ids = torch.argmax(logits, dim=-1)
print("Prediction:", processor.batch_decode(predicted_ids))
print("Reference:", test_dataset["sentence"][:2])
