Wav2Vec2-Large-XLSR-53-Greek

Fine-tuned facebook/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53 on Greek using the Common Voice and CSS10. When using this model, make sure that your speech input is sampled at 16kHz.

This model has been fine-tuned thanks to the GPU credits generously given by the OVHcloud :)

The script used for training can be found here: https://github.com/jonatasgrosman/wav2vec2-sprint

Usage

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

Using the ASRecognition library:

from asrecognition import ASREngine

asr = ASREngine("el", model_path="jonatasgrosman/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53-greek")

audio_paths = ["/path/to/file.mp3", "/path/to/another_file.wav"]
transcriptions = asr.transcribe(audio_paths)

Writing your own inference script:

import torch
import librosa
from datasets import load_dataset
from transformers import Wav2Vec2ForCTC, Wav2Vec2Processor

LANG_ID = "el"
MODEL_ID = "jonatasgrosman/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53-greek"
SAMPLES = 5

test_dataset = load_dataset("common_voice", LANG_ID, split=f"test[:{SAMPLES}]")

processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained(MODEL_ID)
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained(MODEL_ID)

# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the audio files as arrays
def speech_file_to_array_fn(batch):
    speech_array, sampling_rate = librosa.load(batch["path"], sr=16_000)
    batch["speech"] = speech_array
    batch["sentence"] = batch["sentence"].upper()
    return batch

test_dataset = test_dataset.map(speech_file_to_array_fn)
inputs = processor(test_dataset["speech"], 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)
predicted_sentences = processor.batch_decode(predicted_ids)

for i, predicted_sentence in enumerate(predicted_sentences):
    print("-" * 100)
    print("Reference:", test_dataset[i]["sentence"])
    print("Prediction:", predicted_sentence)

Test Result:

In the table below I report the Word Error Rate (WER) and the Character Error Rate (CER) of the model. I ran the evaluation script described above on other models as well (on 2021-04-22). Note that the table below may show different results from those already reported, this may have been caused due to some specificity of the other evaluation scripts used.
