Fine-tuned Wav2Vec2 model on Vietnamese Speech Recognition task using about 270h labelled data combined from multiple datasets including Common Voice, VIVOS, VLSP2020. The model was fine-tuned using SpeechBrain toolkit with a custom tokenizer. For a better experience, we encourage you to learn more about SpeechBrain.
When using this model, make sure that your speech input is sampled at 16kHz.
Please refer to huggingface blog or speechbrain on how to fine-tune Wav2Vec2 model on a specific language.

Benchmark WER result:

without LM 8.23 12.15 12.15
with 4-grams LM 3.70 5.57 5.76

The language model was trained using OSCAR dataset on about 32GB of crawled text.

Install SpeechBrain

To use this model, you should install speechbrain > 0.5.10


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

from speechbrain.pretrained import EncoderASR

model = EncoderASR.from_hparams(source="dragonSwing/wav2vec2-base-vn-270h", savedir="pretrained_models/asr-wav2vec2-vi")
# Output: được hồ chí minh coi là một động lực lớn của sự phát triển đất nước

Inference on GPU

To perform inference on the GPU, add run_opts={"device":"cuda"} when calling the from_hparams method.


The model can be evaluated as follows on the Vietnamese test data of Common Voice 8.0.

import torch
import torchaudio
from datasets import load_dataset, load_metric, Audio
from transformers import Wav2Vec2FeatureExtractor
from speechbrain.pretrained import EncoderASR
import re
test_dataset = load_dataset("mozilla-foundation/common_voice_8_0", "vi", split="test", use_auth_token=True)
test_dataset = test_dataset.cast_column("audio", Audio(sampling_rate=16_000))
device = torch.device("cuda" if torch.cuda.is_available() else "cpu")
wer = load_metric("wer")
extractor = Wav2Vec2FeatureExtractor.from_pretrained("dragonSwing/wav2vec2-base-vn-270h")
model = EncoderASR.from_hparams(source="dragonSwing/wav2vec2-base-vn-270h", savedir="pretrained_models/asr-wav2vec2-vi", run_opts={'device': device})
chars_to_ignore_regex = r'[,?.!\-;:"“%\'�]'
# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the audio files as arrays
def speech_file_to_array_fn(batch):
  audio = batch["audio"]
  batch["target_text"] = re.sub(chars_to_ignore_regex, '', batch["sentence"]).lower()
  batch['speech'] = audio['array']
  return batch
test_dataset = test_dataset.map(speech_file_to_array_fn)

def evaluate(batch):
  # For padding inputs only
  inputs = extractor(
  input_lens = torch.ones(inputs.shape[0])
  pred_str, pred_tokens = model.transcribe_batch(inputs, input_lens)
  batch["pred_strings"] = pred_str
  return batch
result = test_dataset.map(evaluate, batched=True, batch_size=1)
print("WER: {:2f}".format(100 * wer.compute(predictions=result["pred_strings"], references=result["target_text"])))

Test Result: 12.155553%
