Wav2Vec2-Large-XLSR-53-greek

Fine-tuned facebook/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53 on greek using the Common Voice and CSS10 Greek: Single Speaker Speech Dataset. 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", "el", split="test[:2%]") #TODO: replace {lang_id} in your language code here. Make sure the code is one of the *ISO codes* of [this](https://huggingface.co/languages) site.

processor = Wav2Vec2Processor.from_pretrained("vasilis/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53-greek") #TODO: replace {model_id} with your model id. The model id consists of {your_username}/{your_modelname}, *e.g.* `elgeish/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53-arabic`
model = Wav2Vec2ForCTC.from_pretrained("vasilis/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53-greek") #TODO: replace {model_id} with your model id. The model id consists of {your_username}/{your_modelname}, *e.g.* `elgeish/wav2vec2-large-xlsr-53-arabic`

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 greek test data of Common Voice.

Training

The Common Voice train dataset was used for training. Also all of CSS10 Greek was used using the normalized transcripts. During text preprocessing letter ς is normalized to σ the reason is that both letters sound the same with ς only used as the ending character of words. So, the change can be mapped up to proper dictation easily. I tried removing all accents from letters as well that improved WER significantly. The model was reaching 17% WER easily without having converged. However, the text preprocessing needed to do after to fix transcrtiptions would be more complicated. A language model should fix things easily though. Another thing that could be tried out would be to change all of ι, η ... etc to a single character since all sound the same. similar for o and ω these should help the acoustic model part significantly since all these characters map to the same sound. But further text normlization would be needed.
