Whisper Tamil Medium

This model is a fine-tuned version of openai/whisper-medium on the Tamil data available from multiple publicly available ASR corpuses. It has been fine-tuned as a part of the Whisper fine-tuning sprint.

NOTE: The code used to train this model is available for re-use in the whisper-finetune repository.

Usage

In order to evaluate this model on an entire dataset, the evaluation codes available in the whisper-finetune repository can be used.

The same repository also provides the scripts for faster inference using whisper-jax.

In order to infer a single audio file using this model, the following code snippet can be used:

>>> import torch
>>> from transformers import pipeline

>>> # path to the audio file to be transcribed
>>> audio = "/path/to/audio.format"
>>> device = "cuda:0" if torch.cuda.is_available() else "cpu"

>>> transcribe = pipeline(task="automatic-speech-recognition", model="vasista22/whisper-tamil-medium", chunk_length_s=30, device=device)
>>> transcribe.model.config.forced_decoder_ids = transcribe.tokenizer.get_decoder_prompt_ids(language="ta", task="transcribe")

>>> print('Transcription: ', transcribe(audio)["text"])

For faster inference of whisper models, the whisper-jax library can be used. Please follow the necessary installation steps as mentioned here, before using the following code snippet:

>>> import jax.numpy as jnp
>>> from whisper_jax import FlaxWhisperForConditionalGeneration, FlaxWhisperPipline

>>> # path to the audio file to be transcribed
>>> audio = "/path/to/audio.format"

>>> transcribe = FlaxWhisperPipline("vasista22/whisper-tamil-medium", batch_size=16)
>>> transcribe.model.config.forced_decoder_ids = transcribe.tokenizer.get_decoder_prompt_ids(language="ta", task="transcribe")

>>> print('Transcription: ', transcribe(audio)["text"])
