Wav2Vec2-Large-960h-Lv60 + Self-Training

The large model pretrained and fine-tuned on 960 hours of Libri-Light and Librispeech on 16kHz sampled speech audio. Model was trained with Self-Training objective. When using the model make sure that your speech input is also sampled at 16Khz.

Abstract

We show for the first time that learning powerful representations from speech audio alone followed by fine-tuning on transcribed speech can outperform the best semi-supervised methods while being conceptually simpler. wav2vec 2.0 masks the speech input in the latent space and solves a contrastive task defined over a quantization of the latent representations which are jointly learned. Experiments using all labeled data of Librispeech achieve 1.8/3.3 WER on the clean/other test sets. When lowering the amount of labeled data to one hour, wav2vec 2.0 outperforms the previous state of the art on the 100 hour subset while using 100 times less labeled data. Using just ten minutes of labeled data and pre-training on 53k hours of unlabeled data still achieves 4.8/8.2 WER. This demonstrates the feasibility of speech recognition with limited amounts of labeled data.

The original model can be found under https://github.com/pytorch/fairseq/tree/master/examples/wav2vec#wav2vec-20.

Usage

To transcribe audio files the model can be used as a standalone acoustic model as follows:

 from transformers import Wav2Vec2Processor, Wav2Vec2ForCTC
import torch

# tokenize

# retrieve logits
logits = model(input_values).logits

# take argmax and decode
predicted_ids = torch.argmax(logits, dim=-1)
transcription = processor.batch_decode(predicted_ids)


Evaluation

This code snippet shows how to evaluate facebook/wav2vec2-large-960h-lv60-self on LibriSpeech's "clean" and "other" test data.

from datasets import load_dataset
from transformers import Wav2Vec2ForCTC, Wav2Vec2Processor
import torch
from jiwer import wer

def map_to_pred(batch):
input_values = inputs.input_values.to("cuda")

predicted_ids = torch.argmax(logits, dim=-1)
transcription = processor.batch_decode(predicted_ids)
batch["transcription"] = transcription
return batch

result = librispeech_eval.map(map_to_pred, remove_columns=["audio"])

print("WER:", wer(result["text"], result["transcription"]))


Result (WER):

"clean" "other"
1.9 3.9
