Bangla ASR model which was trained Bangla Mozilla Common Voice Dataset. This is Fine-tuning Whisper model using Bangla mozilla common voice dataset. For training this model used 40k training and 7k Validation of around 400 hours of data. We trained 12000 steps and get word error rate 4.58%. This model was whisper small[244 M] variant model.
