Wav2Vec2-Large-XLSR-Upper-Sorbian

Fine-tuned facebook/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53 on the Upper Sorbian Common Voice dataset, with an extra 28 minutes of audio from an online Sorbian course.

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 torch
import torchaudio
from datasets import load_dataset
from transformers import Wav2Vec2ForCTC, Wav2Vec2Processor
test_dataset = load_dataset("common_voice", "hsb", split="test[:2%]")
processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained("jimregan/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-upper-sorbian-mixed")
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained("jimregan/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-upper-sorbian-mixed")
resampler = torchaudio.transforms.Resample(48_000, 16_000)
# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the audio 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])

Evaluation

The model can be evaluated as follows on the Upper Sorbian test data of Common Voice.

import torch
import torchaudio
from datasets import load_dataset, load_metric
from transformers import Wav2Vec2ForCTC, Wav2Vec2Processor
import re
test_dataset = load_dataset("common_voice", "ga-IE", split="test")
wer = load_metric("wer")
processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained("jimregan/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-upper-sorbian-mixed")
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained("jimregan/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-upper-sorbian-mixed")
model.to("cuda")
chars_to_ignore_regex = '[\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\,\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\-\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\;\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\:\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\“\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\%\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\‘\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\”\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\�„«»–]'
resampler = torchaudio.transforms.Resample(48_000, 16_000)
# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the audio files as arrays
def speech_file_to_array_fn(batch):
    batch["sentence"] = remove_special_characters(batch["sentence"])
    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)
# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the audio files as arrays
def evaluate(batch):
    inputs = processor(batch["speech"], sampling_rate=16_000, return_tensors="pt", padding=True)
    with torch.no_grad():
        logits = model(inputs.input_values.to("cuda"), attention_mask=inputs.attention_mask.to("cuda")).logits    
    pred_ids = torch.argmax(logits, dim=-1)
    batch["pred_strings"] = processor.batch_decode(pred_ids)
    return batch
result = test_dataset.map(evaluate, batched=True, batch_size=8)
print("WER: {:2f}".format(100 * wer.compute(predictions=result["pred_strings"], references=result["sentence"])))

Test Result: 48.2 %

Training

The Common Voice train and validation datasets were used for training, with the vocabulary from the English A1 lesson from an online Sorbian course

The script used for training can be found here
