Speech Recognition: Conformer

Model Overview

Conformer-CTC (around 120M parameters) is trained on ASRSet with over 3200 hours of Brazilian Portuguese(pt-BR) speech. The model transcribes speech in lower case Brazilian Portuguese alphabet along with spaces and apostrophes.

Model Architecture

Conformer-CTC [1] model is a non-autoregressive variant of Conformer model [1] for Automatic Speech Recognition which uses CTC loss/decoding instead of Transducer. You may find more info on the detail of this model here: Conformer-CTC Model.

Training

The model was trained on various proprietary and open-source datasets. These datasets include variety of accents, domain specific data for various domains, spontaneous speech and dialogue, all of which contribute to the model’s accuracy. This model delivers WER that is better than or comparable to popular alternate Speech to Text solutions for a range of domains and use cases.
