Wav2Vec2-Large-LV60-TIMIT

Fine-tuned facebook/wav2vec2-large-lv60 on the timit_asr dataset. When using this model, make sure that your speech input is sampled at 16kHz.

Usage

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

import soundfile as sf
import torch
from datasets import load_dataset
from transformers import Wav2Vec2ForCTC, Wav2Vec2Processor

model_name = "elgeish/wav2vec2-large-lv60-timit-asr"
processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained(model_name)
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained(model_name)
model.eval()

dataset = load_dataset("timit_asr", split="test").shuffle().select(range(10))
char_translations = str.maketrans({"-": " ", ",": "", ".": "", "?": ""})

def prepare_example(example):
    example["speech"], _ = sf.read(example["file"])
    example["text"] = example["text"].translate(char_translations)
    example["text"] = " ".join(example["text"].split())  # clean up whitespaces
    example["text"] = example["text"].lower()
    return example

dataset = dataset.map(prepare_example, remove_columns=["file"])
inputs = processor(dataset["speech"], sampling_rate=16000, return_tensors="pt", padding="longest")

with torch.no_grad():
    predicted_ids = torch.argmax(model(inputs.input_values).logits, dim=-1)
predicted_ids[predicted_ids == -100] = processor.tokenizer.pad_token_id  # see fine-tuning script
predicted_transcripts = processor.tokenizer.batch_decode(predicted_ids)

for reference, predicted in zip(dataset["text"], predicted_transcripts):
    print("reference:", reference)
    print("predicted:", predicted)
    print("--")

Here's the output:

reference: the emblem depicts the acropolis all aglow
predicted: the amblum depicts the acropolis all a glo

predicted: he has never himself done anything for which to be hated which of us has
