Wav2Vec2-Large-XLSR-53-hindi

Fine-tuned facebook/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53 hindi using the Multilingual and code-switching ASR challenges for low resource Indian languages. 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", "hi", split="test[:2%]")
processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained("theainerd/Wav2Vec2-large-xlsr-hindi")
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained("theainerd/Wav2Vec2-large-xlsr-hindi")
resampler = torchaudio.transforms.Resample(48_000, 16_000)

# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the aduio 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 hindi 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", "hi", split="test")
wer = load_metric("wer")

processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained("theainerd/Wav2Vec2-large-xlsr-hindi")
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained("theainerd/Wav2Vec2-large-xlsr-hindi")
model.to("cuda")

resampler = torchaudio.transforms.Resample(48_000, 16_000)

chars_to_ignore_regex = '[\,\?\.\!\-\;\:\"\“]'

# Preprocessing the datasets.
# We need to read the aduio files as arrays
def speech_file_to_array_fn(batch):
  batch["sentence"] = re.sub(chars_to_ignore_regex, '', batch["sentence"]).lower()
  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 aduio 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: 72.62 %
