UniSpeech-Large-plus ITALIAN

Microsoft's UniSpeech

The large model pretrained on 16kHz sampled speech audio and phonetic labels and consequently fine-tuned on 1h of Italian phonemes. When using the model make sure that your speech input is also sampled at 16kHz and your text in converted into a sequence of phonemes.

Paper: UniSpeech: Unified Speech Representation Learning with Labeled and Unlabeled Data

Abstract In this paper, we propose a unified pre-training approach called UniSpeech to learn speech representations with both unlabeled and labeled data, in which supervised phonetic CTC learning and phonetically-aware contrastive self-supervised learning are conducted in a multi-task learning manner. The resultant representations can capture information more correlated with phonetic structures and improve the generalization across languages and domains. We evaluate the effectiveness of UniSpeech for cross-lingual representation learning on public CommonVoice corpus. The results show that UniSpeech outperforms self-supervised pretraining and supervised transfer learning for speech recognition by a maximum of 13.4% and 17.8% relative phone error rate reductions respectively (averaged over all testing languages). The transferability of UniSpeech is also demonstrated on a domain-shift speech recognition task, i.e., a relative word error rate reduction of 6% against the previous approach.

This is an speech model that has been fine-tuned on phoneme classification.
