Fine-tuned XLS-R 1B model for speech recognition in English

Fine-tuned facebook/wav2vec2-xls-r-1b on English using the train and validation splits of Common Voice 8.0, Multilingual LibriSpeech, TED-LIUMv3, and Voxpopuli. When using this model, make sure that your speech input is sampled at 16kHz.

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


Using the HuggingSound library:

from huggingsound import SpeechRecognitionModel

model = SpeechRecognitionModel("jonatasgrosman/wav2vec2-xls-r-1b-english")
audio_paths = ["/path/to/file.mp3", "/path/to/another_file.wav"]

transcriptions = model.transcribe(audio_paths)

Writing your own inference script:

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

LANG_ID = "en"
MODEL_ID = "jonatasgrosman/wav2vec2-xls-r-1b-english"

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)
